Hi Achim

A bit heavier to carry around than cowrie shells! Good placement slightly off center, on the right, with superb sharpness. The lush green vegetation adds exoticism. Tfs!

Lol! I saw oriental peaces of money with a hole in the middle... But here... It's surely a big money! You are rich! :) Well see!
I don't have the feeling it's a natural stone. Rest of a construction material i presume. But i like how they integrate it well in the nature of the decorum!

Hi Achim.
Nice shot.

Definitely not the money you want to carry in your pocket ;-) Nice shot of this interesting cultural element. I wonder how in ancient times people say value in such rocks. However it was though, their lives seem to be ok. Nice image and well composed. The colours and light are excellent here. Thanks Achim.
