Plastic Happiness in it's fixed rock-like form that can only exist so long as you conform to the materialism of the modern age, symbolized heavily by the dollar sign positioned above the abstract symbols of love and faith.

Beautiful piece, man.
I really like the message behind this one.

Cheers! There's a bit of subtle symbolism no-one seems to have picked up on (or commented on if they have). The hearts and crosses represent love and faith - two traditional sources of happiness that should have no monetary value, but have largely been eclipsed by the giant dollar sign!

Ah, I hadn't examined it that closely, I'm afraid (probably the price of my insomnia), but now that you've pointed it out it really stands out to me.
Again, I really like this piece, J.
