Futurismo "Numero 2" - A Newer Version Created January 2010!
Futurismo "Numero 2"
It may be known Osvaldo Menegazzi created the original art and deck set known as '
22 Arcani Futuristi'
in 2009 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Futurist Movement (founded in Italy), but what may come as
a surprise is that the original artworks of that deck were stolen. Undaunted, our master craftsman gathered his art supplies and set to work to create this new version called
Futurismo "Numero 2", equally if not more fabulous than the original.
This is also a deck of brightly colored symbols, in keeping with the spirit of the Futurist art movement.
The matching hand-crafted box also a treasure to behold. Each box made by Osvaldo is unique, displaying various imagery from the deck along witha handwritten title, the shop's logo and the signature
hot wax seal.
As with all of Osvaldo's recent handcrafted deck and box sets, each deck has a signed & numbered signature card in beautiful hand drawn calligraphy on specialty paper. The deck is richly symbolic and the artwork is mounted on thick cardstock with a dark brown paper wrapping around to the front of the cards and folded down at each corner, giving it a classy, antique look. The very limited edition, hand-crafted collectable comes in two sizes (details below). A treasure for any Tarot art collection.
This particular smaller set has a wooden 'door knob' handle. Each box is unique. From this side, the il Meneghello logo is shown
Small version shown again below but from this angle, the deck title in lovely script is shown, mounted on thick board creating a cool 3 D look
