Artist's Comments

(Roughly Translated) The choice of these images is intentionally ironic because the faithful joker that has guided me to their meanings did so in a spirit that the ancient symbols could mature over time for me. I have not thought it opportune to explain all the details of each Tarot card, in order to leave space for personal interpretation, to respect the intuition and sensibility of everyone.
