Aside from his tattoo work, artist, Scott Campbell is known for laser cutting designs into stacks of U.S. one dollar bills. Noblesse Oblige, his latest exhibition at the Los Angeles OHWOW gallery reveals a carved intricate 3D skull that has been fashioned from a two-foot cube of money. Using uncut sheets of one dollar bills totaling $11,000, each bill is laser cut before arranging them to create this macabre work of art. Making fun of the rich, the skull does make one raise an eyebrow at the arbitrary nature of cash.
