ABOUT THIS DECK
This is the 8th campaign in the "Lunar & Zodiac" series. This campaign introduces the Year of the Horse and the deck will include features of this zodiac.
All decks are illustrated by hand painting and different interesting themed illustrations of Zodiac animals with their features. The history behind the series of decks was told in the first campaign.
This time, the deck discloses all features, related to the Zodiac of Horse (1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002,2014 and 2026), like matches, worst enemies, lucky numbers, colours and unlucky things, etc. In Oriental culture, the Horse is the most enigmatic animal among the 12 zodiac animals. People born in a year of the Horse are supposed to be the most active and energetic.
Horses love to be in a crowd, and they can usually be seen on such occasions as concerts, theater performances, meetings, sporting events, and parties.
For Mongols the horse is inseparable part of their nomadic life and their history. The horse trainers believe that Hayagirva, the horse headed avatar from Buddhist (Hindu) religion is the god of the Horses. So in the illustration of the deck Hayagirva was main inspiration.
