The Soap Factory is pleased to announce a new limited edition artwork by Alexa Horochowski, Ersatz.
Iron pyrite is known as fool’s gold because of its superficial resemblance to gold. Pyrite dollars are pseudo-fossils, or mineral deposits that mimic life forms such as sand dollars. This ersatz pyrite dollar is cast in bronze, a more valuable metal masquerading as a metal of little worth.
