It is traditionally accepted that the Tarot originated in Egypt. Certainly, Egyptian symbolism and artwork inspired Tarot designers for hundreds of years, and today decks use "conventional" Tarot imagery whose roots are undeniably Egyptian. This reworking of the Tarot returns it to the land of its ancestors, reuniting traditional Egyptian symbolism and imagery with fully researched scenes depicting Ancient Egyptian life and mythology. The major Arcana's central theme is the story of the death and resurrection of Osiris, whereas the minor Arcana reflects the culture of the ancient Egyptians based on genuine wall paintings and carvings. The accompanying book explains the meanings of each of the 78 cards, together with background information to the characters and scenes depicted.
