CLEVELAND (AP) - An Italian Renaissance painting from the Cleveland Museum of Art will adorn millions of postage stamps this holiday season.
The U.S. Postal Service has chosen Sandro Botticelli's "Virgin and Child with the Young John the Baptist" as its 2008 Christmas stamp.
Six hundred million copies of the 42-cent stamp will be printed.
The postal service scours art museums across the U.S. to find an image of Mary and the baby Jesus to feature on the stamp each holiday season.
