Tarot of the Animal Lords

[Hierophant] [3 of Chalices] Man has always looked to the animal world as a source of wisdom about his own nature. In many myths, gods are part human and part animal. The Egyptian god Horus has the head of a falcon. The Greek Minotaur is part man, part bull. The Tarot of the Animal Lords by artist Angelo Giannini extends this tradition. Each card shows a figure with the body of a human and head of some creature from the animal world - mammal, bird, repile or insect. This combination brings new insight into the meaning of the card. Card names are traditional and given in six languages. The suit symbols are creatures too as shown in a small circle in the upper left corner: salamanders (wands), crabs (chalices), butterflies (swords) and beetles (pentacles). The instruction booklet briefly identifies each card's animal and meaning.
