I see what you mean


This King does look a bit crazed. He focuses on derived wealth (the coin) and not the source of the wealth (abundance of Nature that surrounds him).

I guess I see the King of Pentacles differently now that the economic crisis has gone global. The King is obsessed with the coin not necessarily with what gives the coin value. It's just a medium of exchange, there needs to be something behind it. There is in this card, but the King doesn't seem to see it.

Yet, Nature continues to favor him. I like how the tree behind the throne shields the King for the sun's fullness.
