NIUE, 1993, Scott 664
In 1993 Niue chose for its Christmas issue Guido Reni's painting Madonna of the Rosary, a processional banner used to ward off plague from the city of Bologna. Besides the Madonna and Child, the painting pictured the seven protectors of the city. And even though Ignatius and Xavier had been canonized only in 1622, they had already been adopted as patrons by the city in time to be included in this 1630 painting. This stamp focuses on St. Florian (pointing) and St. Proculus, and includes only the hand and chest of Ignatius, who may be better seen in the detail from the painting above or from the painting itself.
