Amazingly detailed and gracefully beautiful, Alasia's tempera-on-papyrus paintings meld the stunning style of ancient Egyptian art with the mysteries of the Tarot. To shape the interpretations, Alasia relied on the conceptions of Jean-Baptiste Pitois, who linked the The Classical Tarots cards, employing delicate, detailed line work and deep, rich colors. Lush and vibrant, these cards illustrate the drama, the complexity, and even the humor and weirdness of life. This deck is authentically reproduced from the original, with the modern addition of a white border with a key word in English, Italian, French, and German for each card. The companion booklets for most Lo Scarabeo decks are in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.
