2010 Olympic Medal Design Unveiled
Their form was inspired by ocean waves, drifting snow and the mountainous landscapes found in the games region and across Canada.
The artwork on the 2010 medals are based on two large master artworks of an orca whale (Olympic) and raven (Paralympic) by Corrine hunt, a Canadian designer/artist of komoyue and tlingit heritage based in Vancouver. each medal has a unique, hand-cropped section of the art, making it a one-of-a-kind. A silk scarf printed with the master artwork will be presented to each medalist along with their medal, enabling them to see how their medal connects with those awarded to other athletes at the games to make the whole design.
