Just looking at this again. The quality of this act sets it apart from littering and vandalism. Firstly, the pennies have the property of value. However trivial one might think of it, at least we can all afford one. Secondly, the display is unobtrusive. Thirdly, tree sap is the glue, and how could that be injurious?
All in all, I see this as respectful expression with little to call up disparagement beyond a religious sort of intolerance, based on fear of what could be. We should be willing to use our intelligence to control what needs controlling and accept this use of the commons as something less than the thefts that go on every day and are unabated under the powers that be.
