This is one of the earliest images added to the original site and I noted at the time, "This one just gets in because it is the only example I have yet found in Britain, Empire and Commonwealth with a hint of nudity [but see New Zealand, 1932]. I expect this was achieved through French influence."

It was noted on the original site that,
The dealers Murray Payne publish an occasional newsletter and in issue 72, December 2007 in an article on Sarawak notes "The 1950 set was a fine set of the 'tourist label' type. Indeed, it was aimed at a rather wider audience than just potential tourists. The 50ct, showing a bare-breasted native woman, was specifically designed to attract young civil servants to decide to make their careers in Sarawak. I wonder if any did venture east as a result of seeing this stamp."
