This set of stamps was issued as a set of two uncut sheets in 1968 to celebrate the Bolivian Carnival, as part of the Homage to the 9th Americo-Spanish Postal Congress. This sheet includes stamps depicting the Auki or Aukis, and the Morenada (Dance of the Moors). The Auki are comical old masked men and women carrying staves who dance hunched over and with shaking legs to Andean music.
