Description

A wall of skulls, coffins and death's heads, with, in the centre, a door with an inscription above. Through the door is visible a hill with a rainbow.

Symbolism

Death is all around is, inevitable The skulls and the coffins will come to us all. But over the door is the inscription:

Arręte! C'est ici l'empire de la mort.
(Stop! You are entering the kingdom of death.)

Going through the door you enter a landscape with a rainbow - hope and light; you can climb upwards, away from the decay of the body and the rule of the skeleton. It symbolises hope in the face of hopelessness, change in the face of the unchangeable, a new way forward in spite of everything that may militate against progress.

Card Meaning

The real kingdom of death is free of the material world and the "death" that occurs there; it is a place to shed the trappings of the material world and come to the light. Less literally, to brave your fears will lead to transformation. The end is the beginning.

Artistic Media

A collage of photos I took at various places: an exhibition I went to years ago (called "la mort n'en saura rien") in Paris, St Michan's Church in Dublin, the catacombs in Paris and the landscape outside my own back door. I put it together using Photoshop.

Artist's Bio

Gregory is a granny of two who lives in an old stone farmhouse in the far north of England. She is a naturalised Canadian and very proud of the fact. She loves cats, is afraid of dogs, and has a passion for water - lakes, the sea, rivers, and especially waterfalls. This is odd, as her birth sign is Scorpio.

This is her first ever tarot card. It may be her last.
