CANOE PROW MAKING BY MAORI

Canoe Prow.
This 1d stamp shows us the making of a canoe prow by the Maori in New Zealand before 1800 by which the New Zealand Post gives:
When it is considered that the Māori did not process metal tools and relied upon stone and bone, the intricacy and beauty of the wood carving that was produced is incredible.

ISLAND BAY N.Z. and fishing boats.

New Zealand issued in 1983 four stamps which shows us paintings made by Rita Angus, one of this stamps has a maritime theme, it shows us the Island Bay near Wellington, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Island_Bay,_New_Zealand with in the bay fishing boats, which are locally known as the Italian wooden fishing boats. Since the late 19th century Italian emigrants settled in Island Bay (little Italy) many commenced fishing from the bay in the Cook Strait After the 1960s the Italian fleet declined and 2018 there are not more Italian boats in the bay.
Of this issues the New Zealand post gives. This issue of stamps featured the works of Rita Angus whose meticulous compositions in oil and water-colours earned her the reputation as a leader of the modern school of New Zealand painting.
Rita Angus, born in Hastings, and received her early arts skills training at Palmerston North before moving to Christchurch where she attended Diploma classes at the Canterbury School of Arts from 1927-1931. She lived in Christchurch until 1954 when she moved northwards to settle in Wellington, leaving it for one year in 1958 to study and work in Europe. Throughout her career she made frequent painting trips throughout New Zealand, especially to Central Otago and Hawke's Bay.
In the early part of her career she often depicted aspects of Wanaka, a region of particularly serene beauty in New Zealand's South Island. It has been suggested that she turned to watercolour during the war years because paintings in that medium were more saleable when people had less money and also because of a shortage of imported artists materials, but the fact is that the artist was equally at home with both watercolours and oils using them alternatively until the end of her career.
Rita Angus died in 1970 at the age of 62 years following a lifetime devoted to art. In a newspaper obituary Mr Melvin Day, the Director of the National Art Gallery, stated "Her influence on painting in this country was wholly beneficial, not only because of her achievement in art, but above all for her artistic integrity and independence". But perhaps the last word should be left to the artist. In the Year Book of the Arts, 1947, Rita said her aim was "to show to the present a peaceful way, and through devotion to visual art to sow some seed for possible maturity in later generations."
This stamp issue featured four stamps with her artwork and the issue coincided with the first major touring exhibition of works by the artist, which was organised by the National Art Gallery in Wellington. The four paintings chosen to feature on the stamps came from different stages of the artist's career, spanning forty years, in the medium of watercolours and oils. A presentation pack was also issued on 27 April and featured the four stamps. The pack was done in a vertical format, which comformed to the stamp issue. A self-portrait of Rita Angus featured on the front cover.

WSD 42 111K AFRAMAX tanker design

The last stamp of the set of Cuba did give me some problems, there are many red hulled tankers but most photo’s shows the ship forepart.
But at least the large white funnel did give me the clue, the funnel did have not an owners logo, so most probably it was a vessel under construction.
I found a photo on the net for a tanker design from Wartsila Ship Design which shows the ship I was looking for only the free fall lifeboat was not in the same position as on the stamp, but she is the vessel on the stamp. If already one ship of this design is sold, I am not sure.

The design is known as WSD 42 111K an Aframax tanker for oil and products.

Nilgiri

Click image to view full size
A warship I.N.S. Nilgiri, is depicted on an Indian 20p. stamp issued to commemorate the vessel's launching on October 23 at Bombay. Her builders were the Mazagon Dock Ltd., who took over the private yard formerly owned by the British India Steam Navigation Co. Ltd. The Nilgiri is an improved "Leander" class frigate, with a speed of 30 knots. Standard displacement is 2,450 tons, 2,860 full-load on dimensions approximately 360 x 43 x 18 ft. She is equipped with a "Wasp" helicopter, "Seacat" guided missiles, long-range air warning radar, improved anti-submarine equipment, and electronic and fire-control systems. Although the stamp pays tribute to the Nilgiri, the warship was obviously only just launched at the time and cannot be the actual vessel the stamp depicts, but simply one of the class.

03 June 1972 completed.

INS NILGIRI (F33) was the lead ship of her class of frigates. Commissioned on 3 June 1972 into the Indian Navy, she was decommissioned in 1996.
INS NILGIRI was the first major warship built in India keel up. It was built at Mazagon Docks Limited, Mumbai in collaboration with Yarrow Shipbuilders, Glasgow. The collaboration involved designs of the Royal Navy's improved Type 12 general purpose frigate and technical and training support for construction of 6 vessels. The project to build NILGIRI was led by Homi Sethna and Commander (later Rear Admiral) Prakash N Gour. The success of NILGIRI led to the Indian Navy along with Mazagon Docks redesigning the last two ships of the class – INS VINDHYAGIRI and INS TARAGIRI to add the Sea King helicopter, ILAS 324 mm torpedo tubes and Bofors ASW rocket launcher.
The ship was fitted with the Agouti system to minimize propellor cavitation noise.
Decommissioning

INS NILGIRI was decommissioned in 1996. She was sunk on 24 April 1997, in a test firing of a Sea Eagle anti-ship missile by a Sea Harrier Frs Mk.51 taking off from the aircraft carrier INS VIRAAT.
