This pile of cash is actually just carved wood

We're rich! You would scream if you stumbled upon these cash wads in a cardboard box but your calculations would be a little off. Not because you counted wrong but because there actually isn't money in the box. What you think is a box of 100s is actually just an excellent wood carving. The money is wood.

Wow have your eyes deceived you. It's all because of the masterful woodwork of artist Randall Rosenthal. He turns blocks of wood into everyday objects. It's a wonderful illusion. Each piece of art is hand carved from one block of wood and then hand painted.

Just look at the detail on some of his work:
