Cover from Jimei University

The Jimei University (集美大学) is a public university located in Xiamen, Fujian.  Founded in October 1994, the university was the result of combing 5 institutes and colleges in the Jimei Schools Village.  I had the chance to receive a cover of this University sent from Xiamen (厦门) on December 31, 2010. :)

The sable (Martes zibellina), a species of marten, and the saiga (Saiga tatarica) are illustrated on the 2,60元 and 5.40元 respectively.

The 1.20元 shows a Beijing opera performer.  The Peking opera is a form of traditional Chinese theatre which combines music, vocal performance, mime, dance and acrobatics.

Two beautiful stamps on the verso also.  They both portray scenery of China.
