Mythical Avalon, home of the chivalrous legends of King Arthur and his knights, comes back to life in these beautiful cards with a fantastic medieval setting: a world of light and darkness which reflects contemporary civilization. Good and bad are continuously compared in the Avalon Tarot, a game with Christian and pagan symbols. The deck, designed in a young and aggressive style, was directly inspired by the thirteenth-century French tradition.
Proud, strong, and powerful, the images of the Avalon Tarot tell the Arthurian legends in true heroic fashion. The bold images speak clearly and unapologetically of brave knights, bloody battles, beautiful and dangerous women, and the never-ending struggle of good versus evil. The deck features Christian and Pagan symbols as well as frequent nudity.
