This hand-decoupaged matchbox features Queen of Wands 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 courage, independence, determination, and being a social butterfly. This queen sits on her desert throne, decorated with imagery of lions and salamanders, with sunflowers and a sprouted hemp staff in her hand, symbolizing life, fertility, joy, and satisfaction. Supporting the fire element, her gown flows into a pool of lava and smoke coils around her hand. A black cat sits at her feet and carnelian protrudes from her head and cheeks into a set of cat ears and whiskers, showing that this queen is in touch with her shadow self – the darker, lesser-known side of her being. 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.
