Ace of Pentacles/Coins Across Decks
I saw in my statistics page that someone had come to my site searching for images of the Ace of Coins. I thought to myself that this might make an excellent study.
Danger, danger, hours later after searching through dozens of decks and scanning, adjusting, rotating and labelling in Photoshop, I’m a bit punchy. When you’re in a funk, nothing helps like a bit of sorting, categorization, and organization. This was more than a bit, but hey it made for a keenly interesting day.
Dealing mostly with the Rider-Waite model (here used in the Universal Waite deck) I decided that there were three kinds of imagery with this card: the classic “hand of God” approach; the figurative approach related to the theme like in the Golden Tarot; and the pattern and shape decorated or changed similar to a pip in transformation playing cards, like in this marvelous Ace of Pentacles in the Sun and Moon.
In this study I am ignoring the figurative approach, and looking more at the other two.
THE HAND OF GOD APPROACH
I don’t see too many people using the Fradella deck but it’s one of my favourites.
PAGAN PENTACLES AND GROWING THINGS
COINS OF THE REALM
BUDDHA AND THE THIRD EYE
ANCIENT STANDING STONES
PATTERNS AND SHAPES
SO UNIQUE THEY CAN’T BE CATEGORIZED
I’ve talked about that Universal Fantasy card before, it reminds me so much of an old brooch.
So that’s it, about 8 hours of work and 39 decks!
