Artist's description:

I found a whole collection of old bank notes from all over the world, and of course, through my not very subtle mind, this was the first thing I thought of to make!
I hope you think it is fun too, and not an endorsement in any way of actual money laundering!

In this unique mixed media collage I have used a beautiful piece of bright white linen fabric as my "canvas", it has a lovely texture and look. On to the linen I have collaged the old bank notes and freehand machine stitched around and over them, creating the pieces of clothing and the poles. I have used mostly black thread with the ground/grass in green. I have backed the linen fabric with vlieseline, like a thin fabric to steady it and tie in any loose threads.
The collage comes with a certificate of authenticity and is signed on the front in stitching.
I think I would recommend it to be hung behind glass to protect the notes.
This is a unique collage
The actual size of the collaged and embroidered piece is
67 cm x 42cm ( 26" x 16.5") , it is large enough to be framed (it fits into a standard frame with a custom mat) quite bold and be the focal point of the space it is hung in.

I ship from my studio in Denmark and the collage comes rolled in a tube, ready to be taken to the framer.
I send it with tracking as it is an original piece of art.
You can of course let me know if you want it gift wrapped!

Thank you so much for visiting in my shop, and warmly welcome back!
