so hot. Love the self-portrait (monochrome, near the bottom).

Holy shit those are awesome. As I scrolled down I thought, oh, this is my favorite, only to have to say it again when I got to the next fabulous one. I really liked the goldfish and the goldfinch and the self-poortrait. Very very cool.

Way cool. I like 'Capitalism', and 'The world is yours'.

Wow, these are great. Who'd have thought art made of money could be so interesting? Thanks for the post!

WOW. I particularly like the juxtaposition of iconic religious and historical images with...mammon.

This is good, even if you did forget to use the word "fustian" in your post.

heh, me3dia.

Really wonderful find, peacay! I would so love to see BIG images or some close-up details.

Great stuff. The artist clearly put a lot of money into this effort.

Anyone know if prints are available?

Damn good. Thanks, peacay!

I liked a bunch, but the Great Train Wreck and the self-portrait stand out best. I wonder the size of the originals? They look like they'd be small (otherwise, too expensive).
