The conceptual design of the stamp is combined with the different forms of the horse and the distinguishing characteristics of "Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth". The year of horse, the horse’s nature from the "Five Elements" is "Wood Horse", so it becomes the main character of the five stamps. The "Wood Horse" stamp is applied with emboss printing technique to highlight the elegant posture of neighing horse, together with the hot foil stamping with symphony holographic on the stamp border. The souvenir sheet uses the carousel as the theme, which well represents that Macau is a tourism hot spot, brings people joy and happiness, implying a joyful and harvest year.
