Amun Ra Tarot
June 24, 2008 § 8 Comments
I have just discovered (or, rather, I have just had pointed out to me) the Amun Ra Tarot – a deck in progress by RF Savage. I’m not going to post any images here for fear of stepping on anyone’s copyrighted toes, but I urge you to – nay, insist that you – visit the site.
Be warned. There is nudity, and fire, and lots of pointy-looking teeth. I suppose you could consider some images disturbing…but don’t. To do so would be to deny yourself the joy of studying the meticulous details and vibrant colours in each card, which would be a crime.
It’s a bit Thothy (quite a lot Thothy actually), and maybe also a bit Cosmic Taroty, but mostly it’s very Amun Ra-y. The creator admits it will probably take decades to complete. I say, you’ve got 21 cards already…publish us a majors-only version and that should keep us happy for a while (though, probably not until you’re a hundred).
It’s also listed at Aeclectic if you’d rather not see any flames.
