Russian stamp on Pisces sign constellation

Pisces name sign glyph and constellation appear on a Russian stamp issued on the 21st of April 2004.

Pisces is represented by two fishes and is linked to the month of February. The two fishes nearly always swim in opposite directions and are often linked together by a cord from both of their mouths. They usually swim horizontally but can also be shown going vertically. Water is sometimes shown around them, but there can also be a blank undecorated area, and occasionally… the two are suspended above a lake. Occasionally they are mirror images of each other.
