A striking statue of the cursed King Midas has been created from thousands of new £1 coins.
The larger-than-life gold-coloured model required 2,000 un-circulated pounds which were then stuck with industrial glue all over the artwork.
The king's crown also needed forty £2 coins, which had to be dipped in cola and rubbed down in order to clean them up.
King Midas' legend is a parable tale about the hazards of loving money, when he unwittingly transforms his daughter into solid gold.
The statue's creator Debbie Rees-Deacon, said she wanted to make people think about the real value of money, as both a blessing and a curse.
"I think he (King Midas) will be a favourite here."
