Flights of diversity: Tracing the evolution of avian representation on Indonesian postage stamps (1963-2020)


Author(s): Hashim Mohammed S

Abstract: This paper explores the representation of avian diversity in Indonesian postage stamps from 1963 to 2020. It aims to understand how bird species have been depicted on stamps over time and assess the extent of avian diversity showcased. The research combines ornithology, history, and philately to examine the cultural, environmental, and socio-political contexts of avian representation. Findings reveal a dynamic portrayal of avian diversity, with a shift from emblematic species to a broader range including endangered and endemic species. This reflects a growing awareness of conservation and biodiversity, promoting national pride. The study also analyzes artistic techniques, design trends, and cultural symbolism, highlighting evolving aesthetics and narratives. Additionally, it explores the impact of stamps on public awareness, education, and conservation. This research contributes to understanding avian representation in Indonesian stamps and its implications for conservation and national identity. It informs efforts to promote biodiversity conservation through philatelic initiatives and inspire appreciation for Indonesia's avian heritage.
