Description

Father and son sharing quality time in the woods. They are surrounded by nature and using the elements to survive -- or are they surviving the elements? The father is explaining to the kid something about the sky. The kid is so amazed by the explanation, he hardly pays attention to the marshmallows. They both are happy and enjoying themselves.

Remember that time in your life when you saw your father as someone who knows every answer and can do anything? In the kids eyes his father has infinite capabilities, knowledge and power, the father knows that is not 100% true, but our fathers always do their best to raise us and protect us, using all the tools and resources they have.

Symbolism

Four elements represented in different and combined forms, soil and mud in the shoes, wands and air feeding the fire and all the bottled water they need in this trip.

Fathers clothing in upper body and right hand reminds that of the Magician in the RWS deck. A hardworking bee (a Magician of the nature herself) flies around fathers head following a lemniscate pattern.

Card Meaning

The Magician represents the power in each person, this card speak to us about trust in ourselves, we have the tools and is only up to us to channel the divine gift of creativity, take action and realize our potential, is the moment to achieve what we want, but do not forget your actions must be focused and aware of what you are doing.

The shadow of this card can refer to someone who is not developing its talents or is wasting them, also a trickster who can sell you a great idea which happens to be a great lie. Shadow of the card also includes inability to gather the tools or resources for your projects.

The Magician is related to Air element and planet Mercury.

Artistic Media

Ink on paper, scanned and manipulated by computer to add colors and lettering.
