Investment Opportunity!In its woodland habitat, the great horned owl (Bubo virginianus) can be difficult to spot since its plumage allows it to blend in with the branches and foliage. Not so on this Zentangle®-inspired design, where the owl’s feathered plumage and all-knowing gaze provide the framework for a highly artistic wildlife portrait that is anything but traditional.

This 2 troy ounce pure silver coin brings back an innovative and artistic new take on the traditional image of this fearless predator, combining varying abstract patterns in a beautifully engraved celebration of life as art.

A Technological Marvel: the Perfect Wildlife Design on the Perfect Tableau
 - Each abstract pattern is exquisite in its own right, but when combined together, the varying curved and straight lines capture the owl's distinctive likeness in outstanding detail.
 - The coin’s large diameter (50 mm, or about two inches) allows even the smallest detail to shine, adding to the intricacy and complexity of the engraved design.
 - The texture of the owl's plumage lends itself beautifully to a layering of repetitive abstract patterns, which adds a stunning complexity to this fresh artistic take on the traditional wildlife portrait.
 - Zentangle Art represents the perfect marriage of technique and design: the high-precision engraving and finishing techniques are a powerful testament to the outstanding craftsmanship and technical expertise of the Royal Canadian Mint engravers.
 - The large, two troy ounce pure silver planchet makes the perfect, large-size tableau for the highly desirable great horned owl.

The Great Gray Wolf, An Original Work of Art!
Inspired by a popular creative process known as Zentangle®, the design by Jori van der Linde presents a creative, artistic take on the traditional image of a great horned owl. The bird of prey’s familiar features are unmistakable, especially its piercing gaze, hooked beak and the shape of its ear-like tufts. However, its layered plumage is transformed by an elaborate mix of repetitive abstract patterns, are each more intricate than the next. Every pattern is painstakingly brought to life by a complex mix of precision engraving and sophisticated frosting, with varying thickness of lines, shaded elements, and relief that add a sense of layered depth and contrast to the overall arrangement.
