A very interesting Cow Japanese label: Nandi - the bull which serves as the mount of the god Shiva


Nandi - Is the name for the bull which serves as the mount of the god Shiva and as the gate keeper of Shiva and Parvati. In Hindu mythology, he is the chief guru of eighteen masters (18 siddhas) including Patanjali and Thirumular. Temples venerating Shiva display stone images of a seated Nandi, generally facing the main shrine. There are also a number of temples dedicated solely to Nandi. (from Wikipedia)

The Tokyo (or Tokio as written on the labels) Olympic games 1964 appeared on the Israeli labels of "Hamizrach Matches Agency"

The Tokyo 1964 Summer Olympics

The 1964 Summer Olympics officially known as the Games of the XVIII Olympiad, was an international multi-sport event held in Tokyo, Japan from October 10 to 24, 1964.

Tokyo had been awarded the organization of the 1940 Summer Olympics, but this honor was subsequently passed to Helsinki because of Japan's invasion of China, before ultimately being canceled because of World War II. The 1964 Summer Games were the first Olympics held in Asia.

And this is the UnCut shit of the The Tokyo Olympic game label (not mine):

A lovely Chess set of labels of Hamizrach Matches Agency - an Israeli 1960's match producer

Chess is a two-player strategy board game played on a chessboard, a checkered gameboard with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. 
It is one of the world's most popular games, played by millions of people worldwide at home, in clubs, online, by correspondence, and in tournaments.

Each chess piece has its own style of moving. In the diagrams, the dots mark the squares where the piece can move if no other pieces (including one's own piece) are on the squares between the piece's initial position and its destination.

The king - 
It moves one square in any direction. The king has also a special move which is called castling and involves also moving a rook.

The rook - 
Can move any number of squares along any rank or file, but may not leap over other pieces. Along with the king, the rook is involved during the king's castling move.

The bishop - 
Can move any number of squares diagonally, but may not leap over other pieces.

The queen - 
Combines the power of the rook and bishop and can move any number of squares along rank, file, or diagonal, but it may not leap over other pieces.

The knight - 
Moves to any of the closest squares that are not on the same rank, file, or diagonal, thus the move forms an "L"-shape: two squares vertically and one square horizontally, or two squares horizontally and one square vertically. The knight is the only piece that can leap over other pieces.

The pawn - 
May move forward to the unoccupied square immediately in front of it on the same file; or on its first move it may advance two squares along the same file provided both squares are unoccupied; or it may move to a square occupied by an opponent's piece which is diagonally in front of it on an adjacent file, capturing that piece. The pawn has two special moves: the en passant capture and pawn promotion.

From the 50s matchboxes used as a known advertising media of NUR & NAMER for the Israeli lottery - The Mifal HaPayis

Mifal HaPayis is the national lottery of Israel. Most gambling is illegal in Israel. The only body licensed to provide betting services is Mifal HaPayis.
Mifal HaPayis was established in August 1951 to recruit funding for the construction of a hospital in Tel Aviv. At first, the project's profits were used only for healthcare applications. Later on, when Mifal HaPayis became a national lottery organization, its support was extended to projects in the fields of education, recreation, and the arts. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
