There are 3 pieces of Henan Opera-themed stamps, each standing for one of the three classic Henan Operas, namely Hua Mulan, Sesame Official and Chaoyanggou Village. With freehand landscape paintings as the background and realistic figure paintings as the main elements, the stamps respectively reproduce the scenes of Hua Mulan's decision to disguise herself as a man to join the army for her father in ancient China, County Magistrate Tang Cheng's trial of Yan Xuejiao (wife of a highest-ranking official in ancient China), and Yinhuan's devotion to Chaoyanggou for agriculture production together with her fiancé Shuanbao.
