"Mound: A Symbolic Connection Across Cultures and Landscapes" From the lush baseball fields of Cuba, where Fidel Castro's love for the game was born, to the arid plains of Van Zylsrus in South Africa, where a group of meerkats scurry around their mound homes, mounds have played significant roles across diverse landscapes. In Northumberland, England, Church Hill offers a breathtaking view across the Aln Estuary towards Alnmouth. Bathed in warm winter light, this picturesque scene reminds us of nature's beauty and tranquility. Further along the coast lies Lindisfarne castle on Holy Island. Perched atop Lion Hill, it stands as a testament to history and resilience—a witness to the Battle of Waterloo that shaped nations. Silbury Hill in Wiltshire takes us back even further in time. This Stone Age burial mound holds secrets from our ancient ancestors—an enigmatic reminder of their rituals and beliefs. Closer to home is The Park in Bangor—a gathering place for families and friends seeking solace amidst nature's embrace. Here we find peace away from bustling city life. Moving westward to Wales' Anglesey island reveals Bryn Celli Ddu—an ancient burial chamber dating back 4, 000 years. Its mysterious presence invites contemplation about our own mortality and connection with those who came before us. Glastonbury's St Michael's Mound carries its own spiritual significance within England's Somerset region. Legends intertwine with reality here as pilgrims seek enlightenment at this sacred site steeped in mythological tales. Across continents lies Hanoi’s Ngoc Son Pagoda—also known as Temple of the Jade Mound—where incense offerings fill the air with reverence. It serves as a sanctuary for worshippers seeking inner peace amidst Vietnam’s vibrant capital city.
