#091 Nicaragua...Thanks Jean-Michel

The mini-sheet on the front is from Contemporary Paintings by Rodrigo Penalba issued in 1994 with the title "Entrance to Anticoli".

Rodrigo Penalba (1908-1979) is a Nicaragua artist who is well known for immortalizing Cocibolca (an extinct Nicaragua city) in murals depicting the final battle between its Indian inhabitants and the Spaniards.

The mini-sheet on the back was issued in 1996 to celebrate 9th Asian Philatelic Exhibition depicting the famous Yellow Crane Tower in Wuhan which is my home town. :)
