This stamp forms part of a set of eight issued by Mongolia in 1991 to celebrate the traditional Tsam Hindo-Buddhist masked dance. This stamp depicts Yama (Tshoijoo), king of the dead and the underworld. Yama decides which of the dead ascend to paradise or are punished below. He is the most important of the Mongolian gods.
