This is one of a series of paintings (Chapman’s Peak, Coronet Peak) about the magical qualities of the earth. The circles represent jewels hidden under the surface, the gold ball being about plain rock transforming into treasure. Even the most beautiful stones like amethyst, quartz, topaz & agate have a very plain exterior. Only when you crack the rock open do you find the gems inside. Our journey in life is about the alchemical transformation of the spirit – we can all be gems.
