More about the Deck:
"Spellbinding Victorian-era engravings of landscapes and portraits from around the globe inhabit a reimagined RWS monochromatic universe.
Lua is the Portuguese word for the moon. You may be familiar with its Spanish relative, la luna. The moon’s shades of gray and silvery luminescence are reflected throughout the deck’s work. As the cards took shape during my creation process, their dreamy & soft quality inspired the deck’s naming.
The Lua Tarot was created using stunning 19th-century images of extraordinary landscapes and portraits from around the world. With this work, I strived to excavate and seamlessly collage fragments of a bygone era, combining diverse portraiture with timeless landscapes to create an inspiring tool for modern practitioners of earth magic, ancestral healing, and inner work.
The Lua Tarot is a portal.
Through it, one discovers a world lit with moonlight; a world awash in monochromatic tones and silvery grays. Beyond color, a union of black & white, and all of the shades in between. A dream world, a moon world."
