The reverse image by Curtis Atwater features an orca swimming along the mountainous Pacific coastline. The whale’s dorsal fin and the tallest mountain peak point the eye upward to a warm orange and yellow maple leaf sunset, which is also reflected in the waters below. Detailed engraving and selective colouring make the sunset glow and the Pacific waters shimmer.
