"Lodged for the night at Summit Temple,
Could touch, at arm's reach, the stars so nigh;
Yet dare not raise my voice in speech,
For fear might disturb the beings up high."
- Translated by Andrew W.F. Wong (Huang Hongfa) December 8, 2009
This poem was written more than a thousand years ago by the "Immortal Poet" Li Bai. Often when gazing at those twinkling stars in a clear night sky, we ponder if "the beings up high" truly exist. What qualities and characteristics would they have? How would they appear to our eyes?
To answer these questions, we bring you the Bicycle Nebula Playing Cards
All the faces represent planets and other celestial bodies, including the nine planets, plus Ganymede, Mimas, and Halley's Comet. However, interpretation is left to you; the designer decided not to tell you which card represents which planet.
