The reverse design by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton features a winter scene set in one of Canada’s remote forests. There is a chilling quality to the engraved depiction of the full moon as it illuminates the starry night sky, which is kept cloudless by winter temperatures that are well below freezing. All seems still in a landscape slumbering under a thick blanket of snow.
Suddenly, a lament echoes from a distance and fills the air. A clearing on a hillside soon reveals the source. Two wolves are resting after a good day’s hunt. The moon seems to spotlight the wolves’ engraved features and their thick coats, while handing in the frigid air offer visual evidence of their haunting refrain. Whether there is a warning to rival packs or a call to other pack members, the wolves’ howls seem magnified against the silence of their surroundings.
