DESIGN
The reverse image by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton features a full-body coloured portrait of a bighorn sheep that captures its beauty and size in a natural setting. With its head turned to the left, the muscular bighorn commands attention with its presence as it stands sure-footed atop a rocky ledge, its balance aided by its unique split-hooves. Detailed engraving brings to life the ringed curved horns, while the use of colour recreates the bighorn’s sandy fur. The brilliant hues of the autumn leaves and the green-coloured landscape add vibrancy and dimension to the engraved background, which is dominated by the Rocky Mountains that tower over the river below.
