    A Hermitian, quaternionic metric is constructed in which the real part is the usual metric of a curved space-time and the purely quaternionic part is an (anti) self-dual SU(2) Yang-Mills field. Demanding that a potential exists for the SU(2) field implies that Einstein's field equations with a cosmological constant are satisfied.
