3 of Coins

by Bat Chicken

Card Meaning
Artistic Media
Artist's Bio


This is a pip style card using a soft painted background and three Chinese coins bound together by red ribbon. 


The threes are creative and in the domain of the Empress. The Three of Coins is a representation of her creativity in a practical way.
The ribbons are red, a universal colour for fire and creativity, linking this card to the traditional meaning of the three of coins. Red is also the colour of good luck in Chinese culture, and is related to money as well. Gifts of money are given in red envelopes at the Chinese New Year. The colour of the background is, predominantly, a yellow green. The background grounds the card, so to speak, as Coins are practical and the three of Coins is the practical expression of the creative drive. To the Chinese, green is a colour of wood and yellow is the colour of Earth.

The three coins are bound together as a symbol of creative teamwork.

Card Meaning

Work, craftsmanship, teamwork, skill, mastery

Artistic Media

The background is an original acrylic painting on canvas, photographed, cropped and altered in Photoshop. The coins are a single brass Chinese coin, photographed with ribbon and duplicated. Each element was assembled in Photoshop for the final card.
