The reverse design by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel revisits a magical, light-hearted moment as two
children engage in the winter tradition of creating snow angels! There’s a timeless feel to the
vibrantly coloured image, in which an old-fashioned wooden toboggan on the left conveys the spirit
of play that pervades this outdoor setting. Under the watchful eyes of a snowman in the top right
corner, and their canine companion in the bottom left corner, two children are lying down on their
backs to create angelic silhouettes in the snow. They are all smiles in their brightly coloured winter
garb as they swish their outstretched arms up and down while swinging their legs from side to
side—an effect that is recreated through the use of motion technology, which seamlessly creates
the illusion of continuous movement as the coin is tilted from side to side. The energy is infectious
as the family dog joins in by mimicking the children’s movements, as the sweep of its tail from one
side to the other leaves its own unique imprint in the snow.

Moonlight defines the cougar’s silhouette, and dances on the water and snow. The majestic cat is looking towards the right, as if it has spotted its quarry in the distance. Behind the cougar, subtle shades of blue and gold paint a silent, snow-covered landscape of islands rising up from the calm waters of an inlet.
