For centuries, the masterpiece know as 'The Mona Lisa' has seduced, inspired, intrigued and infuriated us. Despite this being one of the most readily-recognized images on earth, her history remains as enigmatic as her smile.
Was she, as Leonardo DaVinci's biographer insists, the wife of a wealthy merchant? Or was she, as an earlier title for the portrait suggests, a prostitute? Could the Mona Lisa even be a feminized self-portrait of Leonardo himself? Speculation aside, the most important fact is that centuries after her creation, the subtle smile of the Mona Lisa continues to provoke everything from passionate study to wild speculation.
The Mona Lisa Tarot is a working divinatory deck, true to the structure of the original tarot and suitable for use in divination, meditation, visualization, prediction and incantation.
Each card displays a colourful, graphic novel-esque image by Artist Paolo Martinello featuring scenes that are deliberately conceived to tease with shifting narratives, tantalizing connections and subtle hints that point to a bigger picture.
An undeniably fresh and different deck that, in its raw form, sticks to the Rider-Waite model whilst introducing new innovations to the meanings of each card that make it a 'must have' for any tarot enthusiast.
