This hand-decoupaged matchbox features Queen of Swords artwork from my Krystalline Kweens I tarot series.
A print of the original pen and ink tarot card illustration covers the front of the box, representing independence, unbiased judgement, clear boundaries, and direct communication. This pixie queen sits on a silver throne on a cliff top with her sword pointed straight up to the heavens, cutting clear to the truth of all matters. Facing towards the future, her other hand lies outstretched and open ready to receive the blessings coming to her. Supporting the air element, her gown vaporizes into clouds around her feet, representing the ever-changing atmospheric flow. Clear quartz lines her head and back creating an ethereal crown and wings, symbolizing clarity and connection to the air, while her sapphire-adorned accessories support communication of one’s true vision. A swallow flies overhead which spiritually represents decisiveness, happiness, and hope. For more information about the artwork, please visit the following listing.
The back side is covered with gold foiling and approximately 18 wooden matches are contained within.
