Tarot Matryoshka

CAD $100.00

First Edition Deck

Tarot Matryoshka, a traditional majors-only deck, consists of 22 cards. As a rule, the images of the Arcana correspond to the classic ones with some national flavor added. The very shape of matryoshka, the nesting of its components into each other, their transformations –all of this served to form the basis of the images of the Arcana so that they might be understood deeper and, in some cases, reveal their new and unexpected sides. This marvelous toy should be considered a cult object for it’s specific construction and design perfect for concealing spells and secrets. Traditionally carved from Birch wood which is sacred, it is believed to drive off evil spirits, the evil eye, & offer protection. It’s many layers would be perfect for any sort of Rite of Passage or transformation of self spellwork.

Matryoshka as a souvenir is, of course, kitsch, and this determined the style of Tarot Matryoshka. But hopefully behind its external ostentatiousness and rollickingness you’ll be able to see that very grain and that very meaning, which are hidden under the bright multi-colored clothes of the Fool.
