Bizarre Libyan Muammar Gaddafi Postage Stamps

These bizarre and fascinating postage stamps are from Libya over the last twenty years. They depict a variety of different versions of a fist-pumping Muammar Gaddafi improving science, the arts, medicine, school children, associating with Nelson Mandela, somehow aiding what appears to be Native Americans, commanding ships, fighting wars, all while being followed by the sun and giant birds.  In some of the stamps commemorating the “Libyan National Games”, Libyan athletes can be seen playing a good game of tug of war and leapfrog.  Thanks to sludgegulper for putting them online.
