This is the fifth print in a series that examines cliches we have about money that use the same metaphor for both wealth and poverty. The "pile" in this image is based on a photograph of a pile of dried cow dung. I used my father's handwriting to represent poverty, as he came from a very poor family. You can read his story here.
