Artwork Description

Other Media on glass

Signed on the back.

The Penny Pinchers’ colour choices and engraved names are based on the bright and unique Australian bank notes, along with some slang nicknames for our cash:
$5 pink 'prawn'
$10 blue 'heeler'
$20 red 'lobster'
$50 yellow 'pineapple'
$100 green 'Melba'

I remember learning about Dame Nelly Melba in school and thinking about how cool it was for a woman to be on the $100 bill. I think the bright colours of our money are a big talking point for tourists and it is enriching to know more about the people on the notes along with some Aussie nicknames for our currency.

And, no, you don't need to smash it to retrieve your coins, the piece can simply be turned upside-down and shaken, coins and notes alike should fall out easily.

Measurements approx. 15cm x 15cm x 15cm
