The Golden Tarot of the Tsar

The Golden Tarot of the Tsar by Atanas A. Atanasov and Lo Scarabeo: a card-by-card feature by Tarot Zamm.

The latest of Lo Scarabeo’s stunning metallic decks, The Golden Tarot of Tsar is printed with shining gold foil, evocative of the richness of the art of the Tsars. Atanassov meticulously captures the intricate art of the Russian miniaturists who exemplified the art of this time. He also brilliantly merges the archetypes of the Tarot with the histories of Christian saints. Just as the saints achieved spiritual enlightenment and expressed their precepts in their daily actions, so the Tarot helps us access the spiritual and manifest it in our everyday lives.

The histories of the Christian saints were recorded over the centuries through beautiful and powerful icons which pass on the example of religious virtue and the Divine Spirit’s consequent action in the world. The precious art of the Russian miniaturists has been meticulously lavished on these Arcana dedicated to the Tsars, defenders of Christian religion in the East.
