There is a world behind our own. A world of shadows, of old gods, and those beings who weave our Fate. This is the world manifested in the renowned photo project, “The Sabbath”, by Allan Spiers Photography. One of the most trusted tools to communicate with this world is the Tarot. This unique and captivating deck based on “The Sabbath” captures the potency and influence that walks around us unseen. During their creation our altars are lit and hymns and chants of evocation are recited. Their design evolves on its own as if guided by an unseen hand. Once complete we let the card speaks and match it to its suit, adding any specific elements such as disks, vessels, staffs, or blades. Whether you are a collector of Tarot, a diviner, or an appreciator of art, this deck will add an esoteric intrigue to any collection.
They should be anointed by fallen drops of sacred oil, libated with the drops of spilled wine, or tears shed that fall where they are spread, they should inhale the smoke of incense and catch the embers and wax of candles, each deal of the cards lending its own mark to the deck like a memory.
The goal is to have them edged in gold with several available box options. A companion book is being written with each card’s meaning as well as spreads and rites of witchcraft that can be done using the spirits channeled through this deck.
The Sabbath Tarot will be printed on superior quality card stock in vivid full color. Card stock was chosen so the cards can live and evolve with use, absorbing the energy of the environment around them, aging into a relic unique to their possessor.
Each card is a spirit in its own right, adorned with elemental and planetary symbols and hidden intentions sealed within the layers of the design during their creation. We aren’t simply artists, we are occultists who want to capture not only perfect artistic representation, but practical powerful working tools.
This deck captures familiar scenes from The Black Sabbath as well as other sights familiar to witches and their rites. Through these images we call out to the Darkness so that it may share with us its mysteries. They are created to move the viewer, to make them feel something, whether excitement, fear, desire, or curiosity.
The Kickstarter will be launching soon so subscribe to keep yourself updated on the project!
