Winged horsemen, giants, tritons, angels and vestals of fire combine with warriors and mages of Biblical and Roman history to tell the Fool’s journey. This deck inspired Pamela Coleman Smith when she designed the revolutionary Minor Arcana of the Rider-Waite deck. This unique collection of images is also linked to the secrets of the alchemists and to the medieval masters of natural philosophy.
