Tarocco Animal '8 - Moon Card


22 Major Arcana Deck Tarocco Animal '8 (Animal Tarot '8 ) depicts the often playful, sometimes serene, moving and majestic world of animals; or more specifically, the way in which we might characterize animals relating to the personalities and qualities of the Trumps. Some of the images speak for themselves, while others have additional elements added to them; symbolic sketchings, meant to reinforce the iconographic intent representing traditional associations with the 22 archetypes. The cards are printed on gently textured, cream-colored matte cardstock making a delightful collection of photographic artwork.
