Estonian mini-sheet does not show much Finno-Ugric writing, I think it
belongs in this topic.
issued in 1995 features Finno-Ugric or Uralic people, their culture, languages,
and writing. The brown figure appears to be a large antlered animal
with the various antler points identified with various groups of
people, showing the relationship between them. The individual stamps
are identified with the peoples on the points shown in that stamp.
Top row-left to right: Saami
Volga: Mordva, Mari
Permi: Udmurdi, Komi
Bottom row-left to right: Läänamere-Soome: Eesti,
Vadia, Soome, Liivi, Isuri,
Samojeedi: Neenetsi, Eenetsi, Nganassaani, Solkupi,
Ugri: Handi, Mansi, Ungari
The relationships between the various languages and
even between the larger groupings are frequently distant or unclear. Kamassi
became extinct as spoken language in 1988.
The artifacts on the stamps from top to bottom, left to
right are: a drawing on a shaman's drum, a duck-shaped brooch, a
duck-foot necklace, a Khanty band ornament with writing, a bronze
amulet, and Karelian writing on birchbark.
