After playing the board game Monopoly, I realized what a mean spirited game it was and had no interest in playing it again. I used the game money and monopoly man to express a moral reproach of the monopolistic greed we experiencing.
Each piece of money was lacquered on individually over a period of a month. The jail cell is riveted and patinaed copper. The base is made from 1/4" aluminum plate riveted with brass to a copper sheet.
