Tarot of the Ages
The Tarot of the Ages is a multicultural deck that draws on Egyptian culture for the major arcana, and Aztec, Hindu, African and Viking cultures in the minor arcana. The lifelike card artwork is lovely, but somewhat limited by the substantial white borders.

Tarot of the Ages review by Chris M
The Tarot of the Ages is a deck which was created to celebrate Atlantis the "Mother of Civilization." The artwork is by Mario Garizio and the booklet of instructions is by Patrizia D'Agostino.
The major Arcana cards depict Ancient Egypt, said to be the society which most clearly reflects the Atlantian heritage. The minor Arcana show 4 other societies/civilizations of the ancient world. They are as follows rods, African tribal society; cups, Mayan, Inca and Aztec culture; swords, Vikings; and coins, India. The paintings are very detailed and realistic. The figures on each card seem to live in their own plains of reality. However, there is a great deal of nudity and some of the images in the suit of swords are a bit violent.
