This design ties together ancient Greek and Roman art and fantasy tropes of more recent times. It wasn’t uncommon to see art that had someone riding a pegasus or a unicorn in Ancient Greek and Roman art and it wasn’t that unusual to see a van going down the road with a similar scene airbrushed on the side of a van in the US in the 1970s. The woman riding on the unicorn is nude with the unicorn’s hair partially covering her nakedness. The unicorn is unusual in that it has wings like a Pegasus. This makes the scene even more fantastical. The image looks like it was carved into a roughly hewn piece of marble or stone. The antique finish really highlights the shadows and contours making the design look sharper.
The reverse of the bar has a repeated design element that is a lot like the meander art designs of ancient Greece. In the center of the bar is the mint’s logo and ‘10 oz FINE SILVER .9999’.
The shape of the whole bar looks like it is a hunk of marble or stone.
