And so it is, all things in life are collective. Nature is inescapably cooperative. We share with the stars, the clouds, the bees, and each other the same elements that created the complex world we live in. This cooperative endeavor forms life and is the bewitching mystery of the periodic table – the Materia Prima of our unified existence.
This powerful message of unification that circles throughout the Table of Elements inspired us to create 'Materia Prima: An Expression of Matter.' This deck is an expression of the periodic table concentrated in 84 cards. Each chosen element is given its part in the cosmic drama of Life, conjuring matter in the soulful, playful language of the imagination.
Printed on a luxurious, heavy playing card stock that is an exclusive stock for our tarots, inside a richly embossed and intricately foiled tuck box, this deck is a handsome companion for your meditative, tarot practice.
