Da Vinci Enigma Tarot Box Set

Front Cover
Simon & Schuster Australia, 2005 - 144 pages
The Da Vinci Enigma Tarot is faithful to the vision of Leonardo, drawing upon the original sources of his note books, drawings and ideas. Caitlin Matthews has conceived the deck as a way of exploring his enigmatic mind in relationship to the singular and enigmatic destiny of the soul. The 78 cards create a portable notebook containing the macrocosm (minor cards), the lesser manifest world of every day. By discovering the sacred proportions and divine harmony of the macrocosm, the reader is able to attend to the balance and harmony of everyday life. As Leonardo wrote, 'It is an easy thing to make oneself universal.' The tarot cards are designed so that a beautiful Leonardo knot work pattern emerges as the whole deck is laid face down. This design then creates a puzzle in its own right: those cards that can be re-connected after shuffling reveal the strongest interpretations in a reading. The Da Vinci Enigma Tarot takes tarot reading to a more profound dimension than ever before-and presents an enigma within a enigma, to help decode the enigma within oneselves. The international success of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code has linked Leonardo's name with hidden knowledge, heretical intrigue and metaphysical reviation. There is a desire to know more about this 'secret master', whose art and invention still move us today.
