Complete 78 card deck.

Another masterful Tarot from Robert Place, inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite English painter Edward Burne-Jones in turn inspired by Italian Renaissance painters such as Botticelli and Michelangelo. This deck, informed by Renaissance Neoplatonic mysticism, reaches back to that symbolic tradition and the 15th century creators of the first Tarot cards.

Place envisions the Sevenfold Tarot as "a bridge between the art and occult symbolism of the nineteenth century and the iconography and mystical philosophy of the fifteenth century." The "Sevenfold Mystery" represents the path of the soul through the seven virtues (Strength, Temperance, Justice, Prudence (as depicted on the World), and Faith, Hope and Charity. The Sevenfold Mystery is also reflected in the microcosm of the human body in the Chakras, and in the macrocosm in the celestial spheres.

Card back depicts Place's rendition of the Hellenistic Egyptian Staff of Serapis.

Includes a 24 page booklet with a background discussion of the Sevenfold Mystery and meanings for all 78 cards. Serious students of this tradition will want to acquire Place's book, The Tarot: Magic, Alchemy, Hermeticism, and Neoplatonism.
