Description:
At every stage of human history, Gold has played a role. From the ancient fascinations of Moses and Midas through to the modern convulsions, gold has led many of its most eager and proud possessors to a bad end. Gold is a metaphor for the eternal quest for wealth witnessed in our own time as we idolize the quick millionaires among us.
