The reverse design by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks features a precision-engraved portrait of a female white-breasted nuthatch. This little songbird is positioned in a way that offers a side profile view of its facial features as it lifts its long bill upwards; meanwhile, an overhead view of its back and wing plumage reveals a patterned appearance that is artfully conveyed by the detailed engraving. Selective color recreates the effect of sunlight alternately illuminating and casting shadows along the needled branch of a white spruce, where a cone provides a sense of the nuthatch’s size.
