This is a painting of a man whom I know, who has a nature many see as saintly; so he is painted as an icon. This portrays a certain spiritual & symbolic side of human nature. The icon itself is of Angass mac Oge, who is the Celtic God of love; he is surrounded by butterflies, who are his messengers.
This card is a man in the querent's life, or if the querent is male, possibly the querent himself. Next to the woman, he is her lover or husband; next to other cards, he might be a good or a bad influence in the querent's life or if he is the querent, he may be about to have either good luck or a trial. Next to the house, he is home, for example; next to the whip, either he punishes or is punished.
The painting itself is oil on wood with silver leaf and gold leaf, gemstones and crystals. The background is computer-generated from butterfly clip-art & a real sky.
