This deck has been created in ancient Egyptian style and is simply drawn in brown on a buff-coloured background, intended to replicate papyrus. All the Major cards are based on the 'Rider-Waite' deck, albeit it in Egyptian style, but none of the Major cards retains its original title, e.g. 'Justice' becomes 'The Balance and the Sword', 'Death' becomes 'The Reaping Skeleton' and 'The Moon' becomes 'The Twilight'. The card that is usually called 'The Fool' is now 'The Crocodile' and is placed as number twenty-two rather than its usual zero.
The name of one of the Minor Arcana suits has been changed from 'Wands' to Sceptres', whilst all of the Court cards have been re-named and now bear the titles of 'Slave', 'Warrior', 'Mistress' and 'Master'. The Minor cards are 'pip' cards, with each card also showing two Egyptian hieroglyphs. I have not been able to ascertain who was responsible for the artwork.
