VANOC 2010 Medals

October 16, 2009 § Leave a comment

So the medals for the 2010 Winter Olympics @ Van  City were unveiled the other day. I think their beautiful.

– each is casted from re-used circuit boards

– laser engraved with a unique pattern making every medal one-of-a-kind

– are circular in shape and based on a large master artwork of an orca whale by Corrine Hunt, a Canadian designer/artist of Komoyue and Tlingit heritage.
