The Minoan Tarot is inspired by the female-oriented, peaceful civilisation of Ancient Crete, who celebrated the Goddess, the beauty and sacredness of nature, creativity and sexuality. The 78 cards are rooted in the art, archeology and artifacts of the culture, with each card based on an original Minoan artwork. It's a well-researched and beautiful set.
