An eminent artist, Abdul Jabbar Gull pays homage to all artists and designers who have produced beautiful coins over the years.
Also it is an effort to show these beautiful coins to our young generation who has hardly seen any of them.
In the show the artist used 45 coins as each coin was replicated on actual scale and put up on panel of 3ft x 3 ft. . The technique was molding casting process, originals were made in MDF Lasani wood and then molding was done in plaster. The casting technique was “cold bronze casting” in which the bronze powder is mixed with resin.
At this occasion of Pakistan Day, these coin models were being exhibited for public at the Museum of State Bank of Pakistan to not only enjoy art, architecture, museums, but also get insight into our history.
