The reverse image by Canadian artist Andy Everson presents the theme of Land. Its central motif is a beaver, stylized in the tradition of Everson's K'ómoks and Kwakwaka'wakw ancestors.
This image is framed by six maple leaves which, individually, represent autumn. Together, the six leaves form a winter snowflake. The negative spaces between the leaves are the raindrops of spring.
Rays emanating from this central image represent the sunshine of summer. The entire reverse is a full-colour hologram, lending movement and light to this highly symbolic image. Series celebrates the relationship between Canada's three natural realms: land, sky, and sea. This first release, dedicated to "Land, " adopts a beaver as its central motif while ingeniously incorporating Canada's four seasons. This central motif is framed within a wreath of six maple leaves.
The iconic importance of the maple leaf to Canada is well known, but this image also points specifically to the season of autumn, when maple leaves are at their most colourful. Arranged in a six-point pattern, the leaves also become a winter snowflake. Nestled between the leaves are six stylized raindrops, celebrating spring.
Finally, rays of sunlight emanate from the image, symbolizing summer. Like the seasons themselves, each element of the design blends into the next.The design's hologram treatment augments this sense of connection and transition.
