What Price Security?

Today's card from the Tarot Lukumi, by Emanuele Noltro & Luigi Scapini, published by Dal Negro, is the Cuatro de Oros, or Four of Pentacles.

Here, the Thoth influences of this deck are very apparent, and yet... I like the different implements on the golden tower tops, and the many colours and shapes decorating them.  Still, I am left with the sense that the figure in the centre is cut off from the outside, locked in as much as the world is locked out.  And that feels like too high a price for safety.

I am grateful that I don't feel the need for security systems, bars, high walls and gates in my life.
