78 Maya Xultun Tarot Card Deck.

The ancient Mayan civilization of Central America inspired Artist Peter Balin to use its symbols and myths to bring a fresh perspective to the traditional tarot. There is a separate companion book for this deck called The Flight of the Feathered Serpent. Balin describes features of Mayan myth and religion to show how this sophisticated cosmology blends with the tarot and other esoteric sciences.


About the Deck: The major arcana cards show an image. There are no borders or text, although a card's number is shown at the bottom using dots and lines. Each card stands alone, but the majors can also be joined in a puzzle fashion to form a tableau. The minor arcana suits are the staffs, cups, swords, and jades. Each has a different background color. The suit cards are identified in a black band at the bottom, with the name given in five languages. Above that band is another showing the astrological correspondences for the card and the appropriate number of suit symbols. At the top is a scene that reflects the meaning of the card. The court cards are the lord, lady, warrior, and servant.
