The Mythic Tarot
uses Greek mythology to hold a mirror up to our lives. Hand-drawn in a storybook illustration style, the attention to detail is incredible. Every ringlet of hair and blade of grass can be seen.
The major arcana consists of characters from legend like the Star (Pandora opening the Box) as well as the pantheon of Greek Gods and Goddesses: Demeter as Empress, Zeus as Emperor, Persephone as the High Priestess, Chiron as the Hierophant... etc.
