Design 1: ruins of Wat Phra Sri Sanphet (fig.) in Ayutthaya, the ancient capital city of the Ayutthaya Kingdom, as well as a depiction of Luang Pho Prathan Phon (fig.), a type of seated Buddha image in the Dvaravati style (fig.) from the 6th to 11th centuries AD, which incorporated elements from both the Gupta style that lasted from the 4th to 6th centuries AD and is considered a high point in classical Indian art, and the Gandhara style, that flourished from the 1st to 5th centuries AD; Design 2: ruins at Taxila, the ancient capital city of the Gandhara Kingdom and a former Buddhist centre of learning, which is located in present-day Pakistan, as well as some depictions of stone Buddha images in the Gandhara style, an Indian art form in which Buddha images have realistic features and draped attire. Hence, both designs depict the capital of a former kingdom that became a present-day UNESCO World Heritage Site in their respective country, as well as Buddha statues in early Indian art styles that influenced later Dvaravati art. Each stamp also features the Thai and Pakistani national flags.
