The annihilation created by the concept of money, and the fragility of the richness which surrounds it are the issues analized from this work. Honey is used as glue (aesthetic) of petals – coins that the human protagonist put on his face flooded covered like a mask of beauty,a new aesthetic where show off is the only status symbol as possible.

The money like vain element takes on the human body shape and its growing needs, and insatiable to consume and reduce it to a disappearance announced extinction self-induced by the immoderate use of earth energies.
