Stephanie Pui-Mun Law is an incredibly talented artist, so it comes as no surprise that her tarot deck, the Shadowscapes Tarot, is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful tarot decks you will ever set your eyes upon.
The level of detail in the finely intricate watercolour images will almost absorb you into the cards themselves as you try to capture every exquisite detail and question the symbolism of each character within the scene.
The Companion Book, which arrives with the deck, is a work of art in itself. The artist magically weaves the story behind each scene, giving more depth to each card and adding a new dimension to the traditional meanings.
SILVER GILDED FOOTSTEPS glide on silver flowing streams with the silver glowing starlight etching night in silver seams.
Shadowscapes is delicate, mesmerising and slightly addictive. In painting the deck, Stephanie Law wanted to capture “shadows of reality that are almost grasped … in a dream-world made of light and absence of light”. What comes through is Stephanie’s love of archetypes, mythology, dance, minutiae and the beauty of growth and decay, capturing the knife edge between dream and reality.
One thing I really love about this deck is that even the most frightening and energetically heavy cards have a soft beauty to them, which helps you to see the grace and perfection in even the most trying of circumstances. Instead of red devils and slain bodies, we are offered dramatic protagonists, ethereal beings and animal friends (or foe).
If you are new to the tarot and just beginning to remember the meaning of each card, this is a set to buy now and set aside for later. The reason I say this, is that the imagery is not as simple as traditional decks such as the Rider-Waite Tarot, where by looking at the card, the symbolism instantly prompts you to recall the meaning.
On the other hand, If you are an experienced reader and you do not have this deck – your collection is absolutely lacking… Not only will this deck take your breath away, but your clients will be taken on a fascinating journey that will make their reading even more memorable.
It’s time to experience the supernatural magnificence of the Shadowscapes Tarot…
