Saudi artist uses coins to create portraits of kings, leaders

  • Al-Najjar hit the spotlight after he created a picture of King Salman using coins from around the world. “The image of King Salman required 9,000 coins. It took a larger number of coins than the other portraits and it took me three months to finish”
  • Coins are really quite fascinating and as I got older, I had quite a massive supply of Saudi and foreign coins
