The exuberant imagery of the African Tarot Deck draws largely on the African experience, depicted in a primitive art style. MarinaRomitohas reinterpreted the standard Rider-Waite images with symbols inspired by indigenous South African culture to create an accessible, uplifting deck. Evoking universal childhood emotions, African Tarot can help you explore your true inner nature.
The back design of the cards is inspired by the Shagaan culture (one of the indigenous ethnic groups in South Africa); the tortoise symbolizes the slow coming of justice. The miniature deck is perfect for small hands. The 55-page booklet includes individual card meanings as well as card combinations. Marina Romito holds a degree in philosophy but is primarily a seeker of greater global harmony and truth. She was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. Denese Palm has long been involved in the field of human rights, and particularly with women’s group in rural economic assistance projects.
