It is amazing what can happen when you post your thoughts and someone comments on it. This time I have discovered a new deck in the state of creation! Marc Bestgen is on the journey to create his own, absolutely stunning tarot deck. On the cards are nonfigurative digital images that are fantastic for journeying into or meditating on. Each and every one of them are showing tremendous care and love put in their making, and of course great talent from Marc’s side!
The picture above is the Tower. Usually not my favorite card from any deck, as it is always the same old building falling down. Not in this deck though! As soon as I have seen it I fell in love. This is something new! This is the Tower FROM THE INSIDE! It is so exciting and living, moving… it is in fire!
Looking at it brought so many new interpretations and thoughts about number XVI. Just for one example, I have never before thought of it as a girl loosing her virginity. I hope I don’t have to illustrate how this picture came about, that with the throbbing, red tunnel cris-crossed with veins…
I really like the other cards too, but this is something fantastic! I very much recommend everyone who loves Tarot and who likes this kind of art to follow Marc’s work, and if he succeeds in publishing his deck, then buy one off him! (In case you wondered: I don’t get paid for this post, I really think his cards are super and they deserve to be noticed. :))
One note to Marc: I hope you will print them on nice, thick cardboard, because I don’t like the nowadays trending plastic feel on cards. Plastic ones are screeching where they should be whispering into the reader’s ears… Just my thought tho, for what it’s worth. 😀
