Japaridze Tarot (US Games, 2014) has a strange yet opulent feel to it. While the cards rarely echo RWS imagery, traditional interpretations are there if you look for them.
That isn't apparent at first sight
on the Temperance card, showing several swings hanging down, two of
them with blue women on them. The companion book highlights their
expressions - one blissful, one thoughtful - and the 'balancing' aspect.
As for the Court cards, they are also quite different. For one
thing, the Pages and Knights are renamed Jesters and Strangers.
Looking at the Jester of Winds, we have a child's legs poking out of a
rather baroque red costume. His face is painted like a clown, half
hidden under his built-in jester's hat with bells on the ends. I'm
unsure what the object/s in his hands are... Some kind of weird
binoculars? Curiosity, then, and a desire to see and analyse the
world. Speaking the truth is also there, though that would be an
association for any jester!
Finally, the Nine of Gardens (Pentacles) is the most traditional of the bunch, showing an elegant lady in her garden. She wears a fancy hat, and wafts a fan, which was once considered an art form requiring much practice and dedication. I also love how her dress itself is so opulent: layers of varying fabric, bright with more flowers, strange with shapes and patterns and more. And not only is there a flamingo on her shoulder, there is also a snake as part of the lower hem of her dress. A lot to interpret there, should one so choose!
Altogether, it's probably not a plug'n'play kind of deck, but there is plenty to get your teeth into, and the art is amazing.
