In Latvian mythology, Mara is the highest-ranking goddess. She is very similar to the fictional character, Mother Earth. So it is fitting that the design on the obverse side of the bar has her sitting on a throne that looks like tree limbs and has a moon over her head. There is an air of confidence and menace to her look that maybe comes from her responsibility to take the spirits of people after they die. She is shown here seated in a long dress and barefoot. She has a wreath of flowers on her head. The composition is such that she is in the forefront on her throne while at her feet and grass all around her. The ultra-high relief shows every little detail like the individual blades of grass and strands of her hair. With the antique finish, the shadows and contours are more accentuated.
On the reverse of the bar are design elements that are similar to the meander art designs in Ancient Greek art. At the center of the bar is the mint’s logo and ‘10 oz FINE SILVER .9999’.
