YAY I DREW!
Tomorrow is April 1, The day of the FOOL of course! In honor of the day, I set out to create a piece of art following the tarot card, Major Arcana 0 "The Fool".
Take a look at some other great versions!
This one is the traditional card:
Kingdom Hearts Fool by Autumn Sacura
Another Zelda inspired Fool by Malu_CLBS
The fabulous Russel Brand as the Fool found on www.PolyVore.com
I love how this one shows the young/feminine quality of the boy, I think it's just beautiful.
Both of these done by HelloBaby
The Fool Card Tarot Meaning
Basic Tarot Story
With all his worldly possessions in one small pack, the Fool travels he knows not where. So filled with visions, questions, wonder and excitement is he, that he doesn't see the cliff he is likely to fall over. At his heel a small dog harries him (or tries to warn him of a possible mis-step). Will the Fool learn to pay attention to where he's going before it's too late?
Basic Tarot Meaning
At #0 (or, in some decks, #22, the last card as much as the first of the Majors) the Fool is the card of infinite possibilities. The bag on the staff indicates that he has all he needs to do or be anything he wants, he has only to stop and unpack. He is on his way to a brand new beginning.
But the card carries a little bark of warning as well. While it's wonderful to be enthralled with all around you, excited by all life has to offer, you still need to watch your step, lest you fall and end up looking the fool.
So...watch where you're going! =P
