Algonquin artist Frank Polson has created a captivating image of a full moon in 2018 $3 Fine Silver Coin – The Thirteen Teachings From Grandmother Moon: Corn Moon filling the sky as it sits low on the horizon behind a tree that is beginning to transform into the vibrant colours of autumn. A corn stalk stands to the left, its leaves, tassels and corn seemingly reaching for the sky. Dashes of vivid green reflect the inner world of the leaves as they capture sunlight and perform the hidden process of photosynthesis. The ear of corn and its silks are portrayed in the fiery colours of autumn, the husk removed to reveal rows of plump kernels and golden silky threads.
