Description

From mountains to plains, forests to tundra, CanadaÕs wilderness is home to an incredible diversity of life; it is a place of perpetual beauty, where discoveries and unexpected encounters can provide soul-stirring moments of tranquility and reflection. The three-coin Reflections of Wildlife series celebrates CanadaÕs natural beauty through depictions of a contemplative moment in the wild.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton features a beautifully engraved wildlife portrait of a mighty grizzly bear (Ursus arctos) at the waterÕs edge. With the dense alpine forest filling the background behind it, the hungry bear has stepped beyond the rocky shores of a pond and into the water, sending a ripple of gentle waves across the mirror-like surface. The grizzly bearÕs characteristic hump is all the more prominent as this iconic animal lowers its head and seemingly gazes at its reflection in the water, which is beautifully recreated through careful finishing techniques.

A gorgeous addition to any nature, wildlife and Canadiana-themed collection, and a thoughtful gift for art appreciators and outdoor enthusiasts alike!
