F.A.O. issue (U.N. World Food/Hunger organization) featuring stylized S. American Indian symbols. This particular commemorative design can be found in bronze (11k minted), silver (500k), and gold (450). I have the silver example here too.
F.A.O. issue (U.N. World Food/Hunger organization) featuring stylized S. American Indian symbols. This particular commemorative design can be found in bronze (11k minted), silver (500k), and gold (450). I have the bronze example here too.
This coin was created to adhere to the numismatic FAO program and is present on sets "Food for All" (Panel 2A) and FAO Album (page 9). The design is based upon the esthetical style created by the Uruguayan artist Joaquin Torres Garcia (known as "Constructive Universalism" or "Constructivism").
On the obverse shows a Sun, Constructivist version, and on reverse several symbols. Torres Garcia thought art should not copy nature, but not negate it either. Symbols are modern, but also remind native symbolism. They are so simple and bi-dimensionals, that evocate primitive art, and are very easy to understand them, main are: the fish (Nature), the triangle (Reason), the heart (feelings), man and woman.
Meanings of the symbols on reverse:
1: Creator's Face; 2: carpenter's square; 3: Universal Man, no races; 4: eel (representing sea element; 5: oxen yoke ; 6: seeds; 7: bird and seed; 8: fruit tree branch; 9: shovel; 10: buoy (fishing stuff); 11: tray to keep water and a seed; 12: fruit tree stakes; 13: axe; 14: ploughshare; 15: cow and seed; 16: lizard; 17: grinding grain mortar.
