Coin Replica of the City of Chingqing by He Peixi

May 13, 2015 | in Art

Chinese artist He Peixi used about fifty thousand coins, and a mountain of agates to create a replica city of Chongqing on a smaller scale.

All that he needed was a mountain of coins and small agates, as well as traditional chopsticks. In total, He Peixi used eleven types of coins, some of which have long been withdrawn from circulation. He did not use glue to put together the replica because the law in China prohibits defacing banknotes or coins.
