The images in this deck are inked with non-intrusive outlines, and painted with lively colors. The focus of these images are women, which are displayed soft, strong and sensual throughout this deck. As such, there is a lot of nudity, which may be a turn off for some.
The Major Arcana are numbered top and bottom with roman numerals, starting on 0 with The Fool. However, I was so captivated by the imagery in these cards that at first I didn't notice the lack of labels. This imagery is loosely inspired by the Rider's tradition, with a few hints of Marseilles. For examples, Justice is 8 and Strength is 11 in this deck.
The Minor Arcana avoid the use of labels displaying icons instead. For each card, an icon indicative of their suit is set at the top. The suits are represented with their characteristic icon: a chalice, a pentacle, a sword and a wand. These are also present within the card imagery. The Court Cards display an icon akin to chess pieces at the bottom: a helmet for the Knave, a horse's head for the Knight, and distinctive crowns for the Queen and King. A number is shown at the bottom of the cards for the remaining Minor Arcana.
Due to its nudity and lack of labels, I wouldn't recommend this deck for beginners. However, this deck is one of the most enchanting decks I have ever owned. I recommend it for those collectors who like a fantasy theme with a feminine edge. It comes in a fitting box and includes a Little White Book.
