Award-winning magician Bruno Tarnecci introduces a spectacular deck of cards inspired by the “Chakana”—the path between the living world and spirit world—and “Shamans”—ancient healers who can navigate between these hidden realms.
Shamans believe that any sort of problem, whether it's physical or emotional, can be attributed to a spiritual imbalance. These medicine men/women work to address this root issue and restore balance in the universe, often using the Chakana for their healing methods such as soul retrieval or the eradication of negative energy
The backs of the Shaman Playing Cards are the central point of its celestial design. There are many hidden elements that are explained in detail in the accompanying photos. While the design is wonderfully intricate, you may be surprised to learn that there are only 3 colors used throughout the entire deck of cards. Black to represent wealth and luxury, magenta to represent magic and vitality and touches of violet to bring them both together.
On the faces, the pips maintain a mostly traditional design with only minor alterations made to represent the four key elements on each suit (Spades = Water, Diamonds = Air, Clubs = Earth and Hearts = Fire). The court cards have also been re-colored to forge a more cohesive aesthetic.
Shaman Playing Cards are printed by the USPCC on their highest quality stock and come tucked into a premium matte black, soft-touch tuck case.
