A minor nussance:
I just thought they would be the size of my ISIS Oracle deck or at least the size of most of my tarot decks
But never the less eyeAMcharmed
The petite size gives it's own meaningful read
And I am Enchanted with it's story
looking forward to a larger size and full deck
After the initial Bharata Playing Cards deck came a follow-up, this deck of Bharata Tarot Major Arcana. This has similar styled beautiful artwork, now occupying the full canvas of the cards, and again with hand gilded edges, this time with an antique gold look. Inspiration behind the images includes Kishangarh paintings and miniature paintings, and these really come to life when the borders are absent, and where all the attention is on the artwork.
And the card backs - wow - they are even more lovely than those of the original deck! It looks spectacular. The white borders help ensure that it isn't over the top and remains functional, and there is simple circular design that is immediately memorable - a hallmark of good design. Yet within the simple shapes of the overall design there's incredible detail, including patterned flowers and swan-like figures. And the colours! I am just smitten by the rich combination of reds, blues and purples, which come together in a palette that feels warm and luxurious without being overpowering. Outstanding work!
This is another stunning deck, even though it isn't really intended for significant practical usage. While the cards are poker sized and have gorgeous full-sized art, it is designed as a tarot deck, and only had 26 cards in total (22 Major Arcana cards plus 4 extra cards). However Sunish has also created a Bharata Series 2 deck which has 56 cards with the same artwork on the card backs, and you can add these to make a full deck of 78 cards. I'm a sucker for decks that have luxurious looking tuck box and engaging and unique playing cards, and this deck meets all of those criteria. Lovely Indian folk art! - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
