Regular priceSale price$475.00 CAD
This complete set of Lunar & Zodiac playing cards includes all 12 decks of both the standard and limited editions, housed within luxurious brick boxes, and two sets of 12 Lunar & Zodiac postcards.
The tuck boxes for both editions come with three gorgeous foils, selective glossy varnish, embossing, colored cardstock, and custom deck seals, with the limited editions being numbered. The standard editions are crafted using the finest Italian pearlescent cardstock, while the limited editions are made from premium German black soft-touch cardstock. These are truly some of the most beautiful tucks around, and certainly the best featuring the Zodiac.
The cards have been beautifully illustrated by combining ancestral and modern techniques. The original drawings have been created with a Buddhist painting technique called “nagtan”. This technique uses dark backgrounds and luminous brush strokes. The digital treatment of these illustrations eliminates the dark backgrounds to achieve cleaner and more colorful cards.
Each deck has been customized according to the animal it represents. Thus, the court cards show animals with human aspects dressed in colorful period costumes with faces full of detail. The back designs are intricate and thematic, with different colors and designs animal head of each Zodiac symbol.
