U.S. Capitol building Made wilth dollar bills

This model was made for a client who put it on a cover of a book.

All the bills were folded and had to be glued into place.

I would consider this more of an origami/ papercraft model than true Origami.

I had to do it this way because it is what the client asked for.

Hope you like it.

BTW, the center bill in the dome is a 50 dollar bill.

Thank you everyone for all your comments.
Here are answers to some questions,

Total amount of bills, 51 bills total, 50 $1.00 bills and a single $50.00 bill.
Total value of $100.00

The title of the book is called "Republic, Lost"
by Lawrence Lessig

Quite an expensive medium to fold with!

Insane work, as usual...looking forward to even more money masterpieces!
Can you send me the instruction on the Capitol Building? This is awesome.

wow...cost you alot of money...great work...
Considering that I feel that all of our politicians are bought and paid for, this model is symbolically perfect. Thank you again.
If I commissioned you, would I get to keep the dollar origami thing or would I only get a picture? Also, is there any place I can go to for information about commissions?
