The reverse design by Canadian artist Louise Martineau features an idyllic winter scene of three children tobogganing behind their house. In the foreground, a child dressed warmly pulls another child on a simple wooden toboggan across a small gully in a snowdrift. With the snowy hillside curving gently upward on the left side of the image and a view of a frozen lake and tree-lined mountains in the far distance, the image conveys the gentle rolling hilly terrain familiar to so many Canadians. Just behind the children, another child is captured mid-tumble, a small sled flying high into the air. The children are backgrounded by a red snow-covered house. The brightly coloured scene conveys fun, momentum, and the comfort of knowing that, cold as one gets during these outdoor games, the warmth of home is always nearby.
