“The Mountebanker” 2005
A satirical interpretation of banking chicanery. The cheeky devil sits at the table which is adorned with symbols from ancient grimoires. With a tug of the beard on the grotesque on the front of the case, the ears raise, the mouth opens, starting the show above. The Mountebanker’s head moves from side to side, and with a devious smile, proceeds a classic shell game of cups and balls. In this case, human skulls instead of cups, he creates money from nothing, doubles it twice, then reveals that the money has vanished!
