Reverse

Stylized raven in flight above an engraved coniferous mountainside, set against a sky lit by the northern lights.
The raven and sky are entirely holographic.
The raven flies, wings fully outstretched, in the centre of this image. The lower part of the image, engraved in silver, features rocky mountainous terrain cradling a coniferous forest.
The “sky” above the mountains and surrounding the raven is a stunning hologram reminiscent of the ever-changing, swirling rainbow of the aurora borealis.
