Six of Cups
by M-Press

Card Meaning
Artistic Media
Artist's Bio


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.

Card Meaning

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.

Artistic Media

"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.

Artist's Bio

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.
