'... to dive into the fire,
to ride on the curl'd clouds'

I come
To answer thy best pleasure;
be't to fly,
To swim, to dive into the fire,
to ride
On the curl'd clouds,
-to thy strong bidding task
Ariel and all his quality.

A turquoise egg shaped bead
with red and yellow stylised
flames and black smoke particles
rising to an upper gallery of
white clouds. Inspired by images
from Ariel's opening speech.
