A black and white (grey) image is shown through a multi-colored
border. Inside the "picture" are 6 cups with a flower feel to them.
From two of those cups spring what seems like "hooded faces".The hoods
have stripes on them. One face has wide eyes and interesting cheeks,
looking startled, or just listening with attention. The other "hooded"
is seen from behind so we can not see the face. They seem to be
engaged with each other though, as if in a conversation.
The scene is in black and white, to remind a photo from the past,
taking us back in time, bringing up memories. The hooded faces might
be toys, or some sort of babies, and they symbolize the naive,
childish side of ourselves. In a way, they also look like eggs in
their stand (right out of a continental breakfast tray). This stands
for the evolution of every creature. There is always a past and always
a future, in any situation. And there is also mystery in it all.
This card talks about the slight peculiarity that we bring from our
childhood, no matter where or how we grew up, but just by once being
children, which is "so different" from our adult life.
The interaction of the "hoods" indicates a quality of inner intimacy
often found in the Six of Cups. We will have the chance to look back,
get inspired, miss our long lost childhood, and allow ourselves to
revive some of these qualities, even if only for a while.
"Found objects" from the artist's sketchbook, using Pilot pen. This
particular card, is using only two images, that were "accidentally"
found in the same page of sketches. In addition "Sensitive Inks", that
were done with China Ink on water color paper, using tiny pieces of
paper dipped in black ink. The card was colored in the computer, using
Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
MPress is the Publisher of The Sakki-Sakki Tarot. She is also the
Artist, the author, the assistant and the postman. With a backpack
full of pilot pens and passports she passionately goes about observing
the structures of life and what these might mean-thus she loves so
much the Tarot. Fascinated by the power of myths, always looks for
archetypal visuals, around her and in her head. If none of this will
work, she will become a professional off-key singer.
