A model of the city built with 50,000 Coins

A Chinese artist, He Peixi, constructed a large and detailed model version of his home city, Chingqing in China with more than 50,000 coins.

Different kinds of both ancient and modern currency were used. No glue was applied, all structures were stacked by using chopsticks. Green and red agate stones were used to represent the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. Peixi spent up to two hours every day for a month to create this amazing installation.
