9780007133215: Ancient Egyptian Tarot

The Ancient Egyptian Tarot returns the Tarot to the land of its ancestors. Based on Ancient Egyptian life and mythology, this stunning deck and handbook also includes a history and use of the tarot, which author Clive Barrett believes orginated in Egypt.

The Ancient Egyptian Tarot unites the traditional Egyptian symbolism and imagery which occur throughout all Tarots with fully researched scenes depicting Ancient Egyptian life and mythology.

This handbook explores the origins of the Tarot and the conventionally accepted view that it originated in Egypt. It examines how ancient Egyptian legends influenced the mythology and religions of subsequent cultures around the world, and shows how traditional Tarot imagery corresponds with the resurrection cycle of Osiris. The main body of the book explains the meanings of each card, and gives instructions on how to lay out and read the cards.

The Major Aracana's central theme is the story of Osiris and his resurrection by the hands of Isis, while the Minor Arcana reflect the culture of the Ancient Egyptians based upon genuine wall paintings and carvings from their tombs and temples.
