For this week's free choice, this set was issued in 1963 by Egypt featuring the UNESCO Campaign to save the Temples at Abu Simbel. The temples were being relocated to prevent them disappearing forever under the waters of Lake Nasser.
I've visited the Temples at Abu Simbel, and they are truly breathtaking, I think it would be very hard (probably impossible) to capture that on a stamp.
Here's the wiki link for more information on Abu Simbel and the UNESCO campaign.

Thanks for visiting.
