Jiménez Deredia and the Costa Rican Post Office
February 2011, San José Costa Rica

Since February 2011, 4 of the most representative works by the Costa Rican sculptor Jiménez Deredia travel the world in the form of postage stamps from his native country. Correo de Costa Rica (the Post Office of Costa Rica) has put in circulation the postage stamp honoring the  “Works of Jiménez Deredia” in order to pay homage to the artistic trajectory of the Costa Rican sculptor.  Four of the most emblematic monumental works of the sculptor: “Genesi Recuerdo Profundo”, “Continuacion”, “Recuerdo Profundo” and “Pareja” are printed on the stamps.  The issue consists of 60,000 stamps that can be purchased in the Correos de Costa Rica virtual shop, through the website http://www.correos.go.cr and at the philatelic counter in San José, Costa Rica.
