I’m in Portugal at present, so you can expect some unusual posts in the next week or so. Yesterday we stumbled across an Alladin’s cave in nearby Cacilhas.

A wonderful gent called Eduardo Dinis Henriques invited us into his home to view his collection of art created using coins: mostly redundant from around the Euro zone, but featuring some currently circulating British coins.

He’s been creating these for many years and his house has been overtaken by these pictures, which are a mix of natural subjects and historical scenes or references from Portugal’s past.

He proudly told us about the collection, one of which holds the Guinness Record for the largest picture created from coins: he used over 37,000!
