The Fool by RingmasterBent The Fool by RingmasterBent
The first card from my revamp of my 10 year old Tarot project, the Deck of the Dreamers. You can actually find an older version in my gallery of much lower quality/resolution. The text and numbering will come when I've finished the deck, so for now they remain blank.

The usual fool symbolism is here, but with a small change:

1. Normally you'd find the napsack in the right hand, but I decided to move it to the left and fill it with white roses. To keep his "possessions" in his right hand, I've added locks to his staff. If we assume the staff represents the wands suit and the creative energy associated, the symbolism should remain the same as ever. His creative passion was locked before he started his fool's journey, but he's hefted that weight and carried it right over the edge with him.

You've probably seen these cards evolve from the beginning. Let's hope there isn't a 2020 revamp this time!

I do vaguely remember some of these, yes. :3 I'd say time has done them well. ^_^
