  • DESIGN:

    The reverse design by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc features a side-profile view of an Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus), depicted here in the style of a traditional wildlife portrait. Meticulous engraving recreates the fox’s features with extraordinary precision on such a small canvas, giving it a life-like quality that beautifully captures the texture of its thick, winter pelt. Standing still in the wintry landscape, the fox’s small, rounded ears are alert as it quietly steadies its gaze on its prey beyond the image field.
