Bet your bottom dollar you won’t find this kind of green in your wallet.

Artist Mark Wagner has taken an item as simple as the dollar bill and transformed it into intricate pieces of art. From George Washington facing off with a $1 T-Rex to a psychedelic Abraham Lincoln weaved from ones, Wagner's work presents more questions than it answers, including —is that real money?

In a word, yes.

"All the qualities that make banknotes difficult to counterfeit make them a great material to work with," Wagner explained. "The process provides a fineness and quality of line unmatched by other print processes"

Using actual George Washingtons was a must for the artist. "The material has to be the thing of value, because the transgression, the naughtiness and the sacrifice are all part of the emotional appeal," he said, sagely adding: "Dr. Frankenstein couldn't have made his monster out of color Xeroxes."

The idea is to make a commentary —and often a dark one —on currency, capitalism, wealth, and power. But what about its legality?
