Tarot du Roy Nissanka review by Toria Betson
I fell in love with this tarot deck the moment I took it out of its box. It is beautiful! Reminiscent of Indian or Persian miniatures, the costumes are exquisitely detailed and the scene-less pips are lavishly decorated with flowers and vines. Even the reversible backs of the cards are gorgeous, in a deep navy blue with a lovely gold diamond pattern. The blue color is carried onto the front in the borders. Richly saturated pinks, purples and blues predominate and shiny gold highlights add to the richness of the cards.
King Nissanka was a 12th century king of Sri Lanka. It is said that he was wise and well respected. Many beautiful temples and other structures were attributed to him. Rather than being based on history, the cards seem to have been inspired by a legend surroundin... read more reviews.
