The bar’s front artwork shows the cunning snake, slithering its way up a bundle of three bamboo stalks. The image represents the unexpected challenges that often arise during the Year of the Snake and the determination that one must have in order to achieve abundance. Equally as impressive the message of the artwork are its design elements. From the details of its scales to the skillful rendering of its color pattern, resident artists have exercised great care in creating a realistic portrayal of this alluring reptile. Engraved unto the very bottom of the bamboo shoot is the Chinese symbol for snake.
The back of the bar attempts to create the illusion of a three dimensional image by revealing the reverse side of the front’s artwork. It features the obscured portions of the snake’s body as well as its tail. In addition to its artistic endeavors, the back of the bar also serves as an engraved Assay by displaying the bar’s vital statistics in between each of the snake’s coils. Included in the inscribed text are the PAMP Suisse logo; the weight and purity of the bar; and the words “Essayeur Fonduer” as a confirmation of the bar’s authenticity.
