ABOUT THIS DECK

This series takes as reference the relationship between the nomads of Xiongnu in ancient Northern Asia and the well-known Chinese lunar calendar represented by 12 animals. In this calendar each animal is related to the lunar year of birth and also marks, according to its beliefs, the destiny of each person.

Since a series of 12 decks would be too ambitious for a single project, we decided to launch the first deck dedicated to the PIG year (2019) and then to continue within a year.

About the Deck: Cards have been beautifully illustrated combining ancestral and modern techniques. The original drawings have been created with a Buddhist painting technique called “nagtan”. This technique uses dark backgrounds and luminous brush strokes. The digital treatment of these illustrations eliminates the dark backgrounds to achieve cleaner and more colorful cards.

Each deck has been customized according to the animal it represents. Thus, the court cards show animals with human aspect and dressed in colorful period costumes. The faces are full of details.

Each deck also includes texts with relevant aspects for each sign such as positive and negative colors, lucky numbers, matching signs and enemies, etc…

In addition, each deck will have four jokers for joker collectors.
