Venetian Carnival Tarot - “A work of art really interesting and precious. It goes to the heart of one of the most magical times of the year, the Carnival, which as we know is connected to ancient rites and a mythology that still joins past to present. The colors are bright and vibrant, but not detract from the mystery. Surely it is a gate through which to enter into another world and learn what is behind the mask or just reveal it, so we could use this Tarot deck also as an instrument of knowledge and evolution. A unique work suitable for beginners, but also sophisticated collectors.” - Morena Poltronieri (Director of Museo Internazionale dei Tarocchi, Italy).

If you are unshakable in your desire to master in Tarot, enforcing your divination power, tap into the Venetian Carnival Tarot deck.

Masks on the cards are not creatures of fashion but dress according to the customs of the Self, and they are in tune with the cultural vibrations of Venice in the epoch when Tarot was invented in North Italy. Gestures and close-up pictures on cards serve to focus the synchronicity force. Cards speak to you, not to your logical mind but to your irrational part. This ‘talking’ deck will prove invaluable in ascertaining with the Shadow: the secret desires and inclinations are hidden behind the masks. The Venetian Carnival Tarot deck is intended for you, modern Tarot masters, to unlock a door to the inner realm, hiding behind the Persona (Mask). All card designs are carefully thought to meet your finest expectations in terms of cards’ meanings and assumptions for the reading process efficacy. 

A 120 pages companion book unveils the secrets behind masks. It takes a look at Tarot through the prism of Carl Jung’s psychological functions of feeling, thinking, sensation, and intuition, as well as the key archetypes: the Persona, the Shadow, and the Self to explain and direct the divination process. The book provides you, Tarot masters, with a comprehensive explanation of deeper cards meanings in the way that useful for the efficient reading process. Besides, it helps with an adequate interpretation of a reading session’s results to demonstrate your arcana mastery to querents. This book will offer you the guidance and encouragement you would receive, landing in the place and time where and when the Tarot magic began.

Welcome to the carnival of life where anything is possible!

Roxana Paul is an exhibited artist and Tarot designer. She has been a Tarot reader for five years as well as a member of the Tarosophy Tarot Association and the International Tarot Foundation. Her works draw upon her interest in mysticism, self-development and spiritual transformation with particular attention to the Tarot theme. She created the Maori Tattoo Tarot deck, which is recently released.

"The Maori Tattoo Tarot is a refreshing addition to the pantheon of Tarot decks. It stands apart in how stunningly beautiful is its artistry. And, from a Tarot orthodoxy point of view, I was pleasantly surprised to see how accurate is its alignment with the Marseilles, the Rider-Waite and other “traditional” sets of Tarot archetypes. Beautiful, classy not trashy, and great fun to use! —Paul O’Brien, founder of Tarot.com

The art combines digital paintings with the use of elements from the artist's collection of photos such as jewelry, gloves and fabric swatches to create a realistic look.
