Beautiful Easy-Reading Tarot By A Master Painter|
Spirit Hill Tarot (Standard Edition)
Author: Stone Riley
Publisher: Stone Riley
Category: Tarot Deck Level: All
Modern art has become by now our worldwide culture's universal visual language. Here it's used as such a language should be used: to illuminate one of the worldwide culture's greatest books. For Tarot is such a book undoubtedly: Begun when our ancient Western culture was beginning and retold among us ever since, Tarot is a timeless telling of all human stories of all lives and souls.
And for exactly those reasons, and for its deep beauty too, the Spirit Hill is a very practical and useful Tarot deck. Any counselor, professional or amateur, who is alive in this world today might find it fits their eyes and suits their liking greatly.
The cards were taken from Riley's astonishing array of paintings made between 2000 and 2002 on a magic hilltop in the forest mountains of New England. A scrap of poetry was assigned by the artist to jog the reader's understanding, and then it was all digitally edited onto the cards, by the artist too.
And furthermore, this is meant to be political art. The whole body of Riley's Tarot work - the fifty years of counseling and teaching in addition to his two opposite Tarot decks (opposite across the cosmos of possible styles) and his other divination tools as well - has been meant to help return an enormous power to The People that was robbed from them in the hyper-materialist Age Of Pisces that is now passing by. So yes, this is political art.
How is the Spirit Hill deck different from all other Tarot decks?
The unparalleled beauty of the art work,
therefore its ease of interpretation;
Its psychic depth and resonance,
therefore its adaptability to a multiplicity of philosophical and spiritual paths,
and its usefulness to the novice reader, the Tarot master and the spiritual seeker;
Its visual originality and innovation,
on a firm grounding in the classic Tarot structure;
The intriguing real art story of how the paintings were created
on a magic hilltop in the forest mountains.
The deck has two extra cards with clear brief instructions in Riley's favorite method of their use: You help your fellow human beings through the difficulties of our lives by means of passionately sympathetic and intensely conscious conversation, with no prior Tarot experience required.
In addition, a pamphlet with excerpts from the companion book "Documents For The Reader" is packaged with the deck inside its drawstring bag. This enclosed pamphlet enlarges on Riley's recommended method for doing readings, suggests a course of further study, tells the story of how and why he began in Tarot, argues for Tarot as a public good, and closes with a small collection of inspiring poems.
This Standard Edition comes packaged in a cardboard box rather than the Studio Edition's handmade bag. It is otherwise the same and the price is lower.
