Bergman Tarot - Death Card

Description

22 Major Arcana Deck The creator of the Bergman Tarot, Morena Poltronieri wanted to pay tribute to Igmar Bergman; a cinematographer she idolized since she was a teenager. She long felt that he opened a new dimension within her of inner worlds not before seen, but nonetheless perceived. She describes in the leaflet her feelings that every scene of his films is like a fresco which, when combined with other scenes creates a universe. She embraced his entire body of work, but has chosen only a few main films for this project, which connect the most to her life. The films showcased in this deck are Il Settimo Sigillo (The Seventh Seal), La Fontana della vergine (The Virgin Spring), Il posto delle fragile (Wild Strawberries), Persona, and L’ora del lupo (Hour of the Wolf).

The cards are printed on textured, cream-colored matte cardstock and make a moving dedication to this legendary cinematographer. They are framed to look like film clips. The box the deck comes in is shaped like a film reel container. It includes the title card and a slice of film negative attached with the hot wax seal imprint of the Museo.
