  Nature is the real treasure  
ALTHOUGH this mandala appears as a fantastical bejewelled Celtic brooch, fit for Guinevere’s robe, or a design to be wrought in the most precious of metals and gemstones on King Arthur’s shield, it is more than an elegant amassing of rubies, sapphires, emeralds and gold. Its four-square design equates it with the natural world of the four elements, the four points of the compass, the four seasons, the four ancient humours.

While all cultures have attached great value to precious metals and stones, they are only a tiny part of the bounty of nature, and by no means the most important part – if there is no water to drink, how much will we care about the gold cup we are holding? Without some belated readjustment of the collective consciousness in recognition of this truth, it will be difficult to save the planet from the excesses of our destructive treasure-hunting.
