DESIGN

The reverse image by Canadian artist Emily Damstra features a striking three-quarter profile of a Canadian Atlantic lobster. Finely-detailed engraving recreates the lobster’s characteristic features, from the bumpy “teeth” on the claws to the sensory bristles along the edges of its articulated tail. The long pair of antennae, which are sensitive to the touch and chemicals, rise up past the image field while the shorter antennules are pointed forward to help the lobster react to its surroundings. The lobster’s famous claws are prominently displayed; both its large, big-toothed crusher claw and the fine-edged ripper claw are opened slightly, ready to grip any prey encountered as our lobster walks along the seabed on its eight walking legs.
