A youth stands with confidence facing the right of the card. Holding the tall budding staff with both hands, he appears to be proclaiming an announcement. His traveling robe is tossed over his shoulder, revealing his tunic which is richly decorated with coiling salamanders. His short brimmed hat is adorned with a feather that appears to be a flame. In the distance, hills or pyramids are seen lording over a desert. Continue reading Page of Wands

A youth stands near a body of water under a cloudless sky. Waves are seen rolling behind him.

He holds a two-handed sword before his torso which is still facing the viewer’s right. Bound hair reveals a sharp face. His right foot is tipped to follow the turning motion. Behind him, puffy clouds dominate the sky and give the impression of a passing distant storm. Birds fly high above him. Far in the distance, trees appear dominated by wind.
