Two Unique Decks... Two Ways to Know Yourself & Others
Acclaim from Ruthanne Martin, of Abracadabra Tarot - author & professional reader for over 30 years:
…The cards are stunning, evocative works of art and divination. I love the backs of them as well. Two surreal Major Arcana decks, one focusing on questions of growth (Sunrise) and one focusing on issues surrounding detachment and closure (Sunset).
And an early Review by Bonnie Cehovet, for Perspectives on Tarot.
Description: Museo dei Tarocchi intrigues the senses with Sunrise and Sunset Tarot: Double trump sets that, when combined, give more dimensional readings which focus on the most mystical, mysterious periods of day. From obscurities of darkness at dusk to brightened prospects by dawn, these cards help recognize shadows and transform them on an illuminated path. If you need to know the outcome of a new project, you might refer to the Sunrise Tarot. Otherwise, if you want to understand how to detach from an issue or turn it into opportunity, perhaps work with the Sunset Tarot. To recognize both aspects and gain more depth and perspective, these two decks are best together.
(Description in accompanying leaflet)
Because each card begins to brighten one’s view until everything becomes clearer, so that wisdom can follow understanding...
A lightness of being capable of dancing within the circle of zero.
1 - Magician
Tools of consciousness capable of working with the light without relying solely on the mind.
8 - Strength
The ability to relate to instincts without repressing.
Horizons to explore dimensions or perspectives anew.
(Description in leaflet)
Because the approach of nightfall brings attention to the hidden nature of darkness...
The alchemical Bridge connecting knowledge to wisdom.
8 - Strength
Human and animal aspects merged into a single unifying force.
17 - Star
A need to focus only on what truly guides awareness.
18 - Moon
The fear of missteps while walking in darkness.
About the Artist
Giovanni Monti is a painter, photographer and video artist who manages the exhibition space 'Fantomars' in Bologna (Italy). He also writes a popular art blog. His distinct, unique deck creations: Sunrise & Sunset Tarot are more than a surreal look at the Major Arcana. The Dark and Light contraposition of dreamy collages may awaken primal desires, dreams and also unveil hidden concerns, trepidations and obscurities as you meditate with the cards. The original artworks are on permanent exhibit at the International Tarot Museum (Riola, Italy). Also check out another cool deck by this artist called Tarot of Breath (Tarocchi del Respiro), which was published by the Museo a decade earlier, in 2006.
This trippy, double deck set is recommended for Tarot collectors and those drawn to collage art with layers of meanings that's both enthralling and relevant.
