Ukraine: Oriental Lunar Calendar

Fantastic set Oriental Lunar Calendar on two beautiful mini sheets from Ukraine.
The origin of the eastern horoscope tells the ancient legend. Buddha invited to celebrate the New Year all animals, but only 12 responded to the invitation: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Cat, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. And then Buddha decided to reward the animals, giving each of them a year.

Date of issue is 25.12.2013, print run 105 000. Design by Іван Кравець.

I have received  mini sheets inside this cover with four different stamps:
Solanum lycopersicum L. and Solanum melongena L. (from set Vegetables) issued on 27.09.2016.
European Rowan - Sorbus aucuparia (from set Eighth Definitive Issue) issued on 03.02.2012.
White maple (from set Eighth Definitive Issue) issued on 25.07.2012.

Thank you Sergey!
