The hugely anticipated White Numen Tarot by AlbaBG is a masterpiece of beautiful hand-drawn art and exceptional colouring.
Sacred animal spirits (‘Numen’) are interwoven into the classical imagery of the tarot to create stunning cards that are both otherworldly and yet highly contemporary.
White Numen Tarot is an exemplary example of the very best that modern tarot can deliver and has been highly praised by the Tarot Community. These are cards that feel truly alive.
Our ancestors knew how to tremble in the presence of that little abyss within the eyes of a beast. They knew how to recognize the bond with creatures radically different from themselves, whom they venerated, but at the same time whose death meant food, thus life. This ancient conflict reveals the connection between the sacred and the sacrificial and how rituals of cyclic regeneration evolved. Today, humans continue to feel conflicted by our sometimes-violent relationship to the natural world. The images of Numen (sacred spirits) in this deck seek to symbolically close that wound – this is a new kind of ritual for healing and connecting and a chance to rebuild our bond with animals
