Ace of Cups Tarot Card Meaning and Art Moorish Playing Card Deck Fragment
About the Deck
Moorish Playing Card Deck Fragment
From an uncut sheet found in a museum in Barcelona. This deck provides an important link between the Mamluk deck pattern and the Mediterranean deck pattern, because it shares features of both; in general it looks fairly European, but the wands look like Polo Sticks and the Cups still look like Myriads, harking back to Ancient Chinese money-suited cards.
Spain, c. 1414.
