Missão/Missões (How To Build Cathedrals) by Cildo Meireles. 
Missão was created in 1989 when Meireles was asked, along with other Brazilian artists, to create a piece commemorating the Jesuit arrival in Brazil 300 years previously. Instead, Meireles took this chance to critique the church, and religion in general. The entire piece is shrouded in black curtains, keeping all outside lights from penetrating the space. The floor is covered with 600 thousand new pennies. The ceiling is made from suspending thousands of cow femurs from above and lighting them, causing a glowing effect. The “heavens” made of bones and the “earth” made of money are connected by a thin tower of Communion wafers. The piece is currently housed in a museum in Texas.
