About this item
  • Pack information: 78 cards & booklet
    Card dimensions: 65 x 120 mms
    Author:
  • Giordano Berti

    They say: This deck becomes part of the tradition of the "Egyptian-style" Tarot but
  • confronts the task with a special kind of spirit. In most cases, in fact, the Minor Arcana of the old "Egyptian" Tarot are
  • derived from the "Book of Thoth" by Etteilla and the Major Arcana come from "Les XXII Lames Hermetiques" by Pitois-
  • Falconnier. Although the main French and Anglo-Saxon occultists, including famous leaders of the movement such as
  • Papus, Mathers, and Crowley, did not create an explicitly Egyptian Tarot, they moved down the same road paved by
  • Etteilla and Pitois and "dictated law" to the esoterists for nearly the entire twentieth century.

    During the last two
  • decades, however, various artists have devised their own new "Egypt-inspired" Tarot. Some have proposed an
  • absolutely bizarre ancient Egypt which does not correspond to the historic reality. Others, directly inspired by the
  • Egyptian culture, have copied, imitated, or modified sculptures, paintings, or drawings on papyrus. In most cases,
  • however, works without soul were created, or rather, beyond their artistic value, the works do not have a coherent
  • design. Naturally, this criticism is not to be extended to every new "Egyptian Tarot", some of which (very few, actually)
  • possess both artistic and philosophical coherence.

    The "Ramses - Tarot of Eternity" painted by Severino
  • Baraldi, a master of historical illustration, belongs to this last category. This deck, which faithfully interprets my "story-
  • board", concentrates on a well-defined era which begins with the accession to the throne of Sethi I (approx. 1304 B.C.)
  • and ends with the sovereignty of Merenptah (1224 B.C.). Actually, the father and son of Ramses II open and close the
  • series of the 22 Trionfi', or Major Arcana. At the beginning and at the end of this time span are the names of two
  • characters who show up "outside of their time" given that they were supporters of a monotheistic religion which would
  • have then changed the course of history; one was the heretical Pharaoh Amenophi IV, known better as Aken-Aton
  • (who died around 1347 B.C.), and the other was the Egyptian Hebrew Moses (who died around 1265 B.C.). Apart from
  • these two "outsiders", all of the 'Trionfi' refer to fundamental episodes of the very long existence of the "living god"
  • User-Maat-Re Setep-en-Re ("Powerful is the truth of Ra, the Chosen One of Ra"), better known as Ramses II (1302-
  • 1224 B.C.). The main wives of Ramses as well as his most famous children, enemies, battles, etc., were therefore
  • translated into "Trionfi figures".

    Following the same principle, the series of number cards and Court cards focus
  • on the daily life of the era of the great Pharaoh by proposing a series of illustrations which are as faithful to the historical
  • reality as possible. A perfectly coherent deck concerning history and style was created thanks to the illustrator's
  • exceptional knowledge as well. But beyond this certainly important aspect, a deck was to be created which would
  • contain the fundamental elements of the Tarot's esoterism. Special attention was therefore paid to the layout of each
  • figure which often "invisibly" contains the symbolism which all lovers of the Tarot expect to find.
