I was wandering around the internet looking at some cool works of art using money and I stumbled onto this website: Pictures of Pennies. There's nearly 30 pages with hundreds of photos.

When I first saw the Penny Pyramid, I thought that it didn't look difficult to make but very time consuming...


Then I saw some spiral designs like this one below and I thought that might be a bit harder to do. This spiral uses 2500 U.S. and Canadian coins.


Then my mind began to be blown as this didn't seem like photoshop handiwork and I don't believe they are using glue.




At this point I began scanning my room for loose change and wondering what I could build. I continued looking at the website and saw more amazing works of art including this one of the Petronas Towers of Malaysia


So anyway, if you've got some free time and want to see some cool things then check out Mitch Fincher's Website
