The Tarot of Saqqara

September 10th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Back in 1981, Donald Beaman, a professor of theatrical design at Boston University, visited Saqqara, the burial grounds for the ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis.

Inspired by what he saw and felt at the 3,000 year old site, Beaman set about creating images based on early Egyptian systems of spiritual divination and transformation.

This past year, decades after their creation, dozens of these paintings were discovered in an old Inn and are now being made into a Tarot deck – The Tarot of Saqqara.

It’s quite beautiful. And if you’re a fan of sacred geometry, I think you might especially like it.

To learn more about the cards, the artist, and how this project even came into being, take a look at the video below.
