This first postcard arrived yesterday from Belgium. It is showing the statue of Jan and Hubert van Eyck. Jan van Eyck (or Johannes de Eyck) was a Flemish painter active in Bruges and is generally considered one of the most significant Northern European painters of the 15th century. Hubert van Eyck was Jan’s older brother, also a painter.
The second postcard came from Belarus and – it’s a hockey theme postcard! ::happy happy:: I don’t really know the details about the postcard though, just that it’s a player from Belarus after (obviously) scoring a goal against what looks to be Ukraine. Correct me if I’m wrong. :)
