The reverse design by Canadian artist Julius T. Csotonyi features a wheat field beautifully crafted in colour. The viewpoint is from deep within the grass, looking towards a red barn in the distance. Stalks of wheat tower overhead, but on closer examination, a pronghorn emerges from the scene, shaped by the heads of wheat, the leaves and stems, and the manner in which these elements overlap.
