In 1997 various items made out of banknotes were offered at one of the annual Open Ateliers of the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. This transparent box produced in a small edition was offered for sale in the studio of Meschac Gaba. Gold coloured safety pins are stuck into Benin banknote particles in the shape of a tiny circle.
