Tarot: Ten of Wands by puimun Tarot: Ten of Wands by puimun
Tarot. For more information about the deck and to see the rest of the cards: [link]

Ten of Wands - Burdened with overwhelming responsibility, being held accountable, doing things the hard way.

This Dryad bears the weight of what seems a miniature world upon her back. The support and welfare of the beings who inhabit those towers are hers to nourish with the flow of life's sap through her branches and leaves. Their soul is the song that spirals up through the foliage from her heart.

Medium: Watercolor
Size: 8.5x14 inches

 As with your card with the figure playing the piano that is fused into the tree, this is a wonderful example of organically fusing/melding the character into the scene to portray the meaning of the card. I enjoy that approach. As I mentioned elsewhere, this card resonates the most with me of any card in any deck, to the way I am, the way my life has been. I like the way, too, that the wands are integrated into the painting. Again, it's done in an organic way. Usually wands/the tool of a given element are separate of themselves, like a wand held by a person, a chalice raised by someones hand. It's nice to see a different approach, and one that is one very organically to fuse into the picture so naturally.

Thank you!  I really attempted in the creation of this deck to find a way that the traditional meanings resonated with me.

I have this tarot deck and when I saw the thumbnail for this deviation, my first thought was, "Oh sh*t, somebody copied, they better have credited Stephanie!"

Also, I wanted to tell you that the whole deck is absolutely phenomenal- I'm in love with all the little details, especially all the hidden faires and the red ribbons.

I would love to see the original or a larger version of this. There seems to be so much detail here, especially at the bottom. Very delicate and whispy. I think this might be one of my favorite of the Tarot images.
