I love this deck.
The images are amazing and surprisingly intuitive, although some have to be searched on the book.
They are truly beautiful, for they look like ancient temple paintings of deities hidden on a mountain top, lost long ago. There is no violence or bloody pictures. Each Card has a number, so that you can search easily in the book.
I love all the cards in this deck. If i had to pick a favourite it would be so hard because they are all so lovely. Still, i can say that i adore "Drink From the Emerald Fountain", "Enter the Jade Temple", "Many Hands of the Goddess", "Mother Fierce", "Reveal the Peacock Beauty", "Tai Chi Rising", "The Dance Unveiling" and "The Lotus Throne". The images are all oriental and they remind me of deities from China, Japan and Tibet.
The cards are big (13,9 cm high and 9,5 cm wide), shiny and thick enough to last. They are so glossy, the light gets reflected on them. Blue Angel Publishing has great quality in their decks, as always.
The box is hard and sturdy and also very beautiful. They must spend a fortune in these boxes to make sure they match the oracle inside. I have a satin bag for the cards and it fits in side the box along with the book.
The book is bigger than the cards with 144 pages and it's packed with information. It is well written and very perceptible. It gives good descriptions and meanings of the cards. Each sheet has the miniature picture of the card, it's number, it's title, a small text 7 or 8 lines long for the situation the card portrays, the description and detailed meaning of the card, an exercise to connect with the card's energy (which includes at least one affirmation) and a prayer to this aspect of the deity. It's about two pages for each card.
This is a very accurate deck. It surprised me in my first reading.
It is a feast for the eyes, heart and soul.
