the Holy Grail vs. gold

The Holy Grail is one of the most valuable spiritual relics in the history of the world. It is the fabled cup of Christ that Jesus himself drank out of during his Last Supper before the Crucifixion.

Since the Holy Grail is a sacred artifact, it can be contrasted metaphorically to the simply ornamental qualities of precious gold. Gold itself is a precious commodity in the free market and it can be compared humanely to the colorful cultural qualities of the celebrated Holy Grail.

Do these non-literal considerations reveal the economic ethics of deliberately worldly movies such as "Excalibur" (1981) and "The Golden Child" (1986)?

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
