Title

Ibis Tarot

Subject

Egypt--Religion

Description

78 cards + 2 advertising cards + a dense, 79 page LWB in a standard cardboard tuck box.

The cards are slightly smaller than average, measuring 6.2 cm wide x 12 cm long. The card stock is flexible, with a smooth, matte finish.

The card back design is non-reversible.

The major arcana contain echoes of both the RWS and the TdM traditions, though almost all of the cards are given unique titles in keeping with the deck's Egyptian/mystical theme. The equivalent of Justice, "The Balance and the Sword," is numbered VIII and the equivalent of Strength, "The Tamed Lion," is numbered XI. The Fool is named "The Crocodile," and is placed at the end of the majors, numbered XXII.

Suits are Sceptres, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles. Court cards are Master, Mistress, Warrior, and Slave.

The minor arcana are illustrated, but not scenic; they show influences of multiple tarot systems, but remind me most strongly of the typical Etteilla pattern.
