It’s All or Nothing!

 

The object reveals its purpose only when flipped around. The bottom side consists of a recessed lid with a built in slot. Customarily, you can insert your loose cash through the slot and contribute to your savings. Alternatively, you can use a coin to unscrew the lid and access the treasure inside - Let your money work for you. The color and pudgy shape refer to the idea of a piggy bank but its real purpose is hidden at first sight. It appears merely as an object of decoration, while keeping you valuable unseen. The need for a coin as an opening tool is a metaphorical allusion to the monetary society - you need money to make money.
