King Charles III Definitives
Martin Jennings is a highly acclaimed British sculptor known for his public art installations and monuments. Born in 1957, Jennings studied at the Central School of Art and Design in London and went on to establish his own studio in 1983. His work has been exhibited in galleries and public spaces across the UK and internationally, and he has received numerous commissions for high-profile sculptures.
It is no wonder then that Jennings was commissioned to create the effigy of King Charles III, which features on the latest British Definitve Stamps - the "Jennings Definitives". The Jennings Head design was altered for use on GB Stamps, originally featuring a crown and intended for coinage. His Majesty showed a preference for a more contemporary image of himself, and no royal emblems or jewellery are featured on his new stamps.
The Jennings Definitives maintain the innovative feature of Barcodes, introduced on the late Queen Elizabeth Barcoded Machins.
