Golden Tarot

Kat Black created this tarot deck using digital imaging software with rich Renaissance and Medieval paintings as source material. The images portray historical archetypal symbols and meaning in a contemporary way.

"Golden Tarot has been collaged completely from artwork of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.
They speak to me of a truth that is timeless, and hope that flowers even in the darkest conditions. I hope that they also speak to you".

- Kat Black, artist/author of Golden Tarot.
