The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features an intricately engraved portrait of a pileated woodpecker in a forest setting. The side-profile view offers a sense of the bird’s large size as it takes flight on broad wings, with feathers splayed in a dramatic fashion. Vibrant colour naturally draws the eye to the red crest atop its head, which offers a gorgeous splash of colour above the black and white stripes that run down its neck and re-appear along its flight feathers. Rising up in the engraved background is a mighty maple tree, where large chiselled holes in the bark provide evidence of the woodpecker’s feeding activity before its majestic flight.
