Oz


This image reminded me of Rhodesian Gold and Diamonds; and of a poem,
about the transitory and illusionary nature of power:


"...My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings,
Look on my Works ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

--Percy Bysshe Shelley: Ozymandias
