SALVADOR DALI TAROT REVIEW
According to legend, Salvador Dali created the Dali Universal Tarot as a payment in the 1970s. There have been two versions of the 78 card: one in rare gold, and another version that is now more affordable and easier to access from Taschen.
The Major Arcana have English titles in addition to Spanish titles. They have also numbered I through XXI, from The Magician to this World. Justice is number VIII, while Strength is number XI. Hebrew letters are assigned to cards that begin with Aleph at Magician with Resh At Judgment. Tau is also designated to The World. The Fool is not numbered, while the Hebrew letter Shin increases the leading band. The global and also Zodiacal organizations are quite different from the ones found on many contemporary decks. For example, The Empress of Earth is Temperance, Aquarius and The World is Taurus.
The Majors are powerful, energetic, and manly, with few exceptions. Cards that are often reflective are also analyzed with a sense of necessity in Dali’s world. The High Priestess stands almost straight up, her eyes are wide open and she looks ahead to the Reader as if she is asking the question! The Lovers are usually naked or would be if the musician hadn’t placed that magnificent, blue butterfly above the male fans in the middle section. While the women fans remain unclothed, they watch a bright red, scribbled snake trickle between them from the red tree. All the images of The Lovers are positioned upon a red history, which screams, Do something even if it’s wrong!
SALVADOR DALI TART CARD DETAILS
Each match’s Minor Arcana Ace via Ten has no creating on them. However, they are easily recognizable by the images that are so Dali-skewed to those of a RiderWaiteSmith deck. Each Ace via Ten also includes the required number of personnels and cups, swords, or discs on its face. Spanish Court Cards can be accessed in Spanish. The Suits Bastos and Copas as well Oros refer to Rods or Staffs. They also include Cups, Swords, as well as Discs. The Court Cards Sota and Caballero as well as Reina are page, knight, queen, as well as king, depending on the order.
Many Staffs scenes are set upon a light grey background and are embellished with brightly colored fallen leaves. One hand holds playing cards while the other holds a container. Dali, who is feigning excitement about betting, also fixes the Ace of Staffs. This match grows with a slight respite at Four of Staffs and a little dance. Dali probably assumed that he was also heavy handed, and decided to hide a bit of the Ten’s activity with huge butterflies. El Rey de Bastos is my favorite card from this set. This young king is seated on his throne and holds a large person between his legs in a simple phallic motion.
