Mendi bete diru: exhibition of bank bills with mountain themes
Till December 31th the exhibition Mendi bete diru is exposed in the Basque Museum of Bilbao within the framework of the 11th edition of the Bilbao Mendi Film Festival. It is an exhibition produced by EMMOA-Basque Mountaineering Museum, which shows bank bills from around the world illustrated with mountain themes.
Just the shape of their silhouettes have made many mountains, ranges or peaks national symbols. Take for instance the cases of Mt Everest, Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Ararat, Kilimanjaro, Triglav and many others of their ilk which have ended up on what might seem to be a quite incompatible canvas, a bank note. Thanks to the passion that “Notaphily” awakes we may visit the mountains of the world on the front and back of bank notes from sixty-six countries worldwide and enjoy how each one alludes to the peak or mountain range in question with an artistic touch.
