'Alien' Money

I found this foreign money in my junk pile. Is that an alien on it?

--Katalin Csikos-Gould

Update: Richard M. writes-- "The 'alien face' image on the Romanian money is actually the sculpture "Mademoiselle Pogany" by Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi. Those other shapes on the note are also Brancusi scultures. 'Mlle. Pogany' was done in 5 versions, in marble and bronze, between 1912 and the 1930s, and was modeled after a Hungarian art student named Margit Pogany whom Brancusi met in Paris."
