Frankfurt-based artist and designer Andre Levy transforms for a new project the icons on coins into miniature pop culture portraits. 

Entitled Entitled Tales You Lose, the series includes Marvel superhero The Flash (transformed from an Olympian on a Greek coin), Amy Winehouse, Chanel’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon from The Simpsons, and Princess Leia (transformed from the Queen Elizabeth II on a British pound).
