ANIMAL LORDS TAROT DETAILS
The minor arcana suit’s emblems have been changed, instead of Swords, Wands, Chalices and Pentacles they have been replaced by Butterflies, Salamanders, Crabs and Beetles.
The merging of animal and human well done in most cards preserving the appearance and personality of the animal, while adapting it to the human form and stance with realism and charm (as as realistic as is possible with a deck that is set in a fairytale world that is populated by half-animal, half human creatures! ).
There are many gorgeous and highly appropriate cards to including the gentle and compassionate sage the Tortoise from the King of Cups; the beaver on the Tower card, thrown into the sea after his dam’s logs collapse; Flamingo and Temperance, elegant and long-necked. Two snakes on the Seven of Swords, conferring in whispers. Judgment can be described as a crocodile connecting to Egyptian mythology. Then there’s The Six of Wands, with three roosters in the air while blowing trumpets. However, there’s one other exception that is it’s the Koala that is on the queen of Wands. It’s not the most representation of a Koala, and the dress is unsettling. (Koalas are large gruff, ungodly, and loud creatures and this one is a slim silhouette with a low-cut shirt and Harem pants.)
