When I first created this Maximum Card, I had received numerous comments on the HEAD and TAIL of the Peafowl. One said : The stamp has to be removed from the miniature sheet to realise an MC, the other said : The MS is occupying too much a space on the overall MC, some said : the selvage of the MS cannot form part of the stamp, bla...bla.. bla .
If I were to remove the stamp from the MS, the phesant is left with the HEAD without the tail, will the bird look like a peafowl anymore ? I feel the most beautiful part of the pheasant is the tail, without the tail, it is no longer a peafowl.
Is the MS really occupying too much space on the MC ? This is so far the smallest MS issued in Malaysia, it is comparable to a large format stamp, what's wrong of having the full MS on the MC, really?
I feel a maximaphilist has to posses an artistic thinking, I feel I have every judgement to support my own creation.
