Recognize These Old Stamps?

They were illustrated by French artist Marc Leguay, who used his sons (both biological and adoptive, Henri and Poonsavat, respectively) as models while he drew and painted them playing the instruments.

They're from March 25 1957 and were originally issued as part of the set of stamps featuring traditional Lao musical instruments under what was then the Royal Lao government.
