The artwork of the Akron Tarot
is surrealistic and symbolic, done by the well-reputed German artist Siegfried Otto Hüttengrund.
Influences include Egyptian, Byzantine, and Meso-American cultures.
The cards are meant to be seen from a female perspective so many of the cards have a strong emphasis on the Goddess aspect.
There are two extra major arcana cards in this deck with the first being The Black Goddess / The Scarlet Anima, being numbered XV-I and XV-II respectively, indicating that they are extensions of The Devil card which is of course numbered XV.
The Black Goddess is a representation of the darker side of the female soul while The Scarlet Anima is the reversal and is representative of the hidden female forces in the male nature.

The second extra card is called The Dark Child which represents the self-destroying aspect of human behavior.
Instead of a number it is assigned a symbol: an upside down ankh.
