The sculpture piece is made to represent our society’s obsession with money and how it is never enough. The bottle with scraps of money in reads as "small beer", which is a phrase to mean something that is smaller or less than you would like it to be. On the second head diagram, money is protruding out of the top of the head to represent how our thoughts are filled with daydreams about what we would do if we had more money.
