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 ram'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 ram's coat 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 bighorn sheep.

The Bighorn Sheep, An Original Work of Art!
The bighorn sheep lends its likeness to an artistic re-imagining on your coin, where an original concept by illustrator Jori van der Linde is brought to life by fine engraving and multiple finishes. Inspired by the Zentangle® method of drawing, a captivating combination of abstract patterns adds a sense of texture, depth and creative contrast to this creative portrait, as each motif fills the space within the outline of the sheep’s distinctive curled horns and woolly features. 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.
