This hand-decoupaged matchbox features The Empress 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 femininity, beauty, nature, nurturing, and abundance. Modeled after Virgo, this Empress is a beautiful, maternal figure happily resting in her comfortably cushioned chair by the fire. Twelve visible stars surround her emerald crown, connecting her to the mystical realm and the cycles of the natural world (12 months, 12 planets). A cushion with the mark of Venus, planet of love, creativity, fertility, and beauty, lies beside her and her gown is decorated with pomegranates, another symbol of fertility. Connected to Mother Earth, the elements surround her and natural life is in abundance, bringing her a sense of peace and tranquility. 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.
