This Tarot project is a 22-part series in which I depict each character from the traditional Rider Waite Tarot deck in my own interpretation. I chose to remove the heads of the anthropomorphized figures because I felt it creates distance between the character and the viewer--almost like a saint, deity, or religious icon in the sense that its exact likeness may have been ambiguated over time, increasing the level of mystery and reverence of the character. Instead of heads, they've got flowers, plants, herbs, and trees. I chose each character's corresponding plant by doing research on the Victorian art of floriography, an old means of communication in which people would use flowers to symbolize certain emotions or to convey certain messages. Each flower-character match was made with a great deal of intuition as well as by taking popular interpretations into account.
