This is one of the wonderful designs of the prolific Philippine artist Lynyrd Narciso. It bears the title in old Filipino Tarot ng Daigdig sa Balintataw which translates to "The World inside the Pupil" (the black part of the eye). Narciso's art is anchored in strong underlying drawing, which he has coloured with subtle muted tones keyed to a tight palette. He uses a rather neat technique of altering the contrast in the line drawing so as to create a background, middle ground and foreground to the forms. He adheres closely to the tarot archetypes, but presents them in a new stylised and entirely coherent manner, especially using leaf and feather forms.
Artist: Lynyrd-Jym Narciso

Comments: The Tarot ng Daigdig sa Balintataw (or 'The World Inside the Pupil Tarot') is a stunning art tarot by Lynyrd Narcico, beautifully produced in a limited edition by Adam McLean. The art on the 22 cards is finely line-drawn and filled with muted colours.
