to each one of them, but definitely nearer to the Tarot of Marseilles, and the
Tarot of Visconti than to the various later versions.
The inspiration is overall directed towards an Alchemist approach
and is enriched with interpretations resulting from Jung's search in Psychology in relation
to the esoteric traditions. In spite of the apparent rigour of these sources, a great part was left
for the intuition in the composition, thus a large field to imagination in the choice of the elements.
The 22 Arcana are connected by a set of symbols, by series of 3 and 7 according to a spiral structure.
Except the Fool/the Mat, each picture comprises the image of a couple: the set is placed under the sign
of Duality. The Tarot is in fact a set of images showing a fundamental symbolic system of which
the meanings and interpretation belong to every one. These images are mirrors:
any individual is free to feel them on his own way.
