AN OLD WORLD ART CO. EXCLUSIVE PRINT!
The practice of reading Tarot cards has always had a mystical je ne sais quoi about it but the decks were actually originally used to play common card games in the 15th century. The reading and interpreting of tarot cards for the purpose of gaining insight didn't come into play until the late 1700's. The rich history of Tarot in cartomancy and the characters behind it is a fascinating subject, to be sure.
I was inspired to create this beautiful print after I came across the Waite-Smith Tarot Deck in an old book. Every time I look at it I feel a sense of that unexplainable, ancient tarot magic!
Also available on Canvas with a Wooden Float Frame.
