    Yeah, it's amazing what wood carvers sometimes do. There's a guy in Italy who carves full rooms (dining room table with silverware, bookshelves, etc, full size) and he carved a VW Beetle that he drives around in the canals of Venice to the astonishment of tourists.

    The VW is about half-way down the page here:

    Obviously not as detailed as the painting on the currency carving you linked to, but an interesting type of carving.

    I could take a box and pile money inside of it and it still wouldn't look as realistic as his woodcarving of money in a box. That's stupid-good. I wouldn't believe it was wood if I only saw the final product.
