Dr Revd William Borlase was the first antiquarian to study the sacred sites of Cornwall. Like his near contemporary, Stukeley, he attributed most of the megaliths and stone circles to the druids.

Borlase was also a collector of minerals, and his portrait overlooks the famous mineral room in the Royal Cornwall Museum, which contains specimens housed in a mysterious pyramidal cabinet.

Enigmatic reflections of the room, and the minerals inside it, form the basis of this series of photographs.
