An Irish artist has built a house out of bricks made from shredded euro notes worth EUR1.4 billion.
Frank Buckley borrowed the shredded euro notes from Ireland's national mint to build his house in the lobby of a vacant Dublin office building.
The house includes a living room, bathroom and bedroom, with patio, kitchen and money shower soon to come. Even pictures on the walls are made from notes and coins.
Buckley, who was given a 100% mortgage at the height of the housing boom but has since moved out following separation from his wife, has been living on site since he began building his "billion-euro home" at the beginning of December.
"It's a reflection of the whole madness that gripped us. People were pouring billions into buildings now worth nothing. I wanted to create something from nothing," he told Reuters.
