Series: Eyes of the World
All five coins in this new series are inspirational because each of the animals portrayed on them embodies an exceptional quality. Each animal possesses a special characteristic for which it was praised in the myths of previous cultures. The coin series not only speaks about these amazing creatures and how they have always inhabited and enlivened the human imagination, but also manages to create eye-to-eye contact with the animals. The eyes of the five animals featured in the series are resplendent on the reverse of the five different coins, each in its own shade of sublime Swarovski® crystal, enhancing their already mythical quality.
Despite the nocturnal hunter’s ability to turn its oversized head by up to 270 degrees, the all-knowing serenity it projects as it sits otherwise motionless on a branch is uncannily reminiscent of the elderly members of our own species. This may be why we humans have always recognized ourselves in the owl. The light of wisdom seems to shine in the bird’s eyes, to the extent that it used to be believed that the owl produced light itself, its eyes like round windows magically illuminating the darkness. Equating light with wisdom stems from the Western worldview, which since time immemorial has pitched the light of reason in a struggle against the forces of darkness.
