This is the eighth in a nine-print series examining figures of speech about money that use the same metaphor for both wealth and poverty.
Sometimes it's fun to visually remember that I work with a Japanese method of printmaking. When I thought of raking, I thought of the lovely raked gravel temple gardens I saw in Kyoto at the Mokuhanga Conference last summer.

Rakes and forks both have prongs that grab things. The prongs on forks (including pitch forks) are called tines. The prongs on rakes are called teeth. English is a funny language.
