VIII Justice
The Book of the Dead
The Tarot card symbol of the scales found on the Justice card can be found in the zodiac sign of Libra as well as in the ancient Egyptian stories of the judgment of souls in the Book of the Dead. In these stories it is Maat the Goddess of Truth and Justice who weighs men's souls against a feather before they can pass on into the next world
Typically, as shown in the image of papyrus, the deceased is led into the Hall of Judgment by the god ibis-headed Thoth, the god of scribes and writing (husband of Ma’at). The deceased is shown on the far right, accompanied by Ma'at, she is wearing the white ostrich feather on her head. In the papyrus image the deceased is able to witness the weighing of his heart in the scale against the feather of Ma'at. Jackal-headed Anubis who guides the souls of the dead and falcon-headed savior god Horus assist in the process of weighing, while a baboon, an animal sacred to Thoth, perches at the top of the scale. Ammit, the devouring monster, waits atop a pedestal to consume the heart if it is found wanting in the balance. Thoth makes a gesture of greeting to green skinned Osiris- king of the other world. Osiris is accompanied by images of the "Four Sons of Horus," who emerge from a lotus blossom, symbolic of rebirth. The action is witnessed by forty-one or forty-two figures, each holding, again, the ostrich feather of Ma'at. The cornice is a decorative frieze of alternating cobras, flaming pots, and ostrich feathers.
A poem from W.B. Yeats the first song of the "Two Songs from a Play" overlays the image of a portrait of the now famous Afghan woman portrayed in the National Geographic magazine cover. Yeat’s writes;

I saw a staring virgin stand
Where holy Dionysus* died,
And tear the heart out of his side,
And lay that heart upon her hand
And bear that beating heart away;
And then did all the Muses sing
Of Magnus Annus* at the spring,
As though God's death were but a play.

When I read this poem the Afghan woman’s face came into my mind with the thought there will be no justice for anyone until there is justice for everyone. The tragedy of current unnecessary wars brings imbalance and great suffering to our world and it will take generations to heal the effects. In the shadow of the reality of these atroscities theatrical performances like passion plays and other trials of deity seem hollow. I have placed a vessel representing the heart of the “God” in her hands and she will be the judge. Ma’at’s feather has fallen to the ground and the scales seem to look like they are hanging from a Cross. This is not the laughing Justice of the MAAT Tarot but rather her somber counterpart.
It is my opinion the Justice card represents the full moon cycle of Libra March 21st-April 19th (the full moon of this month marks the holy days of Easter, Passover and Ostara/Eostar, its planetary ruler is Mars.)
*Annus Magnus (Latin) Great year; the precessional cycle of 25,920 years. Also, the interval between two successive ecliptic conjunctions of all the planets, including sun and moon. The Hindus date the beginning of the kali yuga from such a conjunction said to have taken place in 3102 BC. It was a general belief in antiquity that cycles of varying lengths marked the terminal or initial points of eras, the occurrence or recurrence of cataclysms, and the consequent recurrence of similar events. * Dionysus or Dionysos (Ancient Greek: ?????s?? or ?????s??; also known as Bacchus in both Greek and Roman mythology and associated with the Italic Liber), the Thracian god of wine, represents not only the intoxicating power of wine, but also its social and beneficent influences. He is viewed as the promoter of civilization, a lawgiver, and lover of peace — as well as the patron deity of both agriculture and the theater. It is possible that Dionysian mythology would later find its way into Christianity. There are many parallels between the legends of Dionysus and Jesus; both were said to have been born from a mortal woman but fathered by a god, to have returned from the dead, and to have transformed water into wine.

XX Judgment
Pilgrim
Judgment is a rather puzzling card; often it is necessary to transcend the obvious Rider-Waite-Smith traditional “second coming” ideas, to realize it is a card of thresholds and possibilities. The moment depicted here presents a time for personal review and an opportunity for change or movement in a new direction.
In 1912 a mysterious red haired man named simply Mr. Pilgrim and his companion, Lady Quartermaine, arrived at the Burgholzli Psychiatric Clinic in Zurich. After numerous suicide attempts, Mr. Pilgrim has arrived to be treated by Carl Jung. The story of the main character is told through direct narrative, flashbacks and journal entries; he claims to be immortal and without a specific gender. He has been a disabled shepherd who encountered the levitating St. Teresa of Avila in a tree, a stained glass artist at Chartres, the model for the Mona Lisa, and a resident of the famous Cheyne Walk in Edwardian London. Pilgrim is unspeakably weary and wants to die. Immortality was his punishment for observing the gods mating in the Tree of Life in the Garden. Finally, there is a sign it may be his time to go and he escapes Jung’s clinic. He leaves the doctor a note, which contains the central core of what he has learned on earth:
“My dear Herr Doktor Blockhead, …The so-called Mysteries have been with us forever. There is not a society on the face of the earth nor of time that does not and did not have its own version of what these Mysteries reveal of the Great Spirit, God, the gods and their relationship to our lives – and our lives to theirs. Sun-dancing, circumcision, birth itself, animal and human sacrifice, virginity, Ra, Raven, Tarot, Voodoo, I Ching, Zen, totems personal and tribal, the cult of Mary and the cult of Satan – the list is endless. In modern times, we call such Mysteries art. Our greatest shamans of the moment are Rodin, Stravinsky (much as I hate his music) and Mann. And what else are they telling us but: go back and look again. In time, these shamans will be replaced by others – but all speaking in a single voice. It was ever thus. But no one listens.”
Through his encounter with Pilgrim, Jung – his imagination freed – comes to believe in his own theory of the Collective Unconscious. Pilgrim after liberating the Mona Lisa from the Louvre and setting fire to the Chartres, takes his leave of this earth and is presumably successful.

Bio (CV)
While Southern bred-in-the-bone, Elizabeth took a leap of faith in 2003 and moved from Louisiana to coastal Maine, which she believes to be her soul landscape. She lives in the woods with three cats and various wild creatures; just this summer was graced with the gift of having a moose calmly traverse her yard. She has made collage-like art quilts for nearly 25 years with embedded biographical references. Her work has been shown both in the United States and Europe. Accidentally veering into mixed media has caused greater distraction and more accumulation of ephemera (i.e.-stuff and clutter).

Roisin Kearney

Roisin Kearney
Isis (Iside) -

La designer Roisin Kearney ha lanciato la sua etichetta Roisin Dubh nel 1998, caratterizzandola con modelli e parole opulenti. Roisin è ispirata dal mondo antico, le leggende, il folclore, i sonetti, le poesie ed i simboli. Progettando i significati da infondere ai suoi abiti, è di importanza centrale per Roisin, creare indumenti che possono attivare un cambiamento e un’auto-energizzazione attraverso i motivi simbolici psico-attivi stampati. Ciascuna delle sue collezioni ha riflesso questa filosofia, sviluppando quindi il senso visivo ed artistico del design che la rende unica nella sua linea di moda.
Designer Roisin Kearney launched her own label Roisin Dubh in 1998, featuring ornate and opulent screen-printed patterns and words. Roisin draws her inspiration from a fascination with the ancient world, its legends, folklore, sonnets, poems and symbols. Designing layers of meaning into her clothes, is of central importance to Roisin, who creates garments which can activate change and self-empowerment through their intentional display of screen-printed psycho-active symbolic motifs. Each of her successive collections has individualistically reflected this philosophy, thereby developing the visual and artistic design direction that makes her unique in the fashion lineage.

Pino Settanni





"This Tarot is an unusual idea by Pino Settanni, the photographer who has given us many remarkable portraits and compositions directly inspired by the Commedia dell'Arte. It is an interesting idea because it is innovatory. It gives the structure of the traditional Tarot a lively, dynamic and expressive dimension. All the characters which inspire the Major and Minor Arcana in this Tarot are real people. By being placed in an esoteric context and then photographed by an artist, they express the very essence of the Tarot message through their vibrant personalities. We must pay tribute to these artist-models who succeeded in merging perfectly into the symbolic structure of the traditional Tarot. All the symbolic scenes are interpreted solely by women, except for the role of the Fool, played by Mario Scaccia, one of the greatest actors of the Italian theatre.
Jean Louis Victor (Excerpt from Tarot Settanni Ed. AG. Muller)
Pino Settanni was born on 21 March 1949 in Grottaglie (Taranto) Italy. He has been taking photographs since 1966. Since1973, the year in which he moved to Rome, where he has since lived and worked, he has been a professional photographer. Web site

Jacob Kunstmann

Jacob Kunstmann nasce in un paesino vicino ad Anversa il 21 marzo 1948 ed appena ventenne fonda il centro Arcadjia Nouveau, dove raccoglie il pensiero esoterico dell'Europa dell'Est.
Nel 1975, inizia la carriera artistica e le sue opere trovano spazio nei luoghi più strani d'Europa: stazioni di treni, aeroporti, fabbriche etc. fino a lasciare ampie tracce nel quartiere di Greenvillage a New York, attraverso l'aiuto del genio ormai scomparso di Neil Corrim.
Da allora il suo lavoro riprende lo studio degli alchimisti praghesi del XVI e XVII secolo (John Dee, Michael Maier, Sendivogius, Oswald Croll) e trova traduzione nel reale attraverso la ricostruzione di laboratori alchemici realmente esistiti sui quali egli interviene attraverso l'utilizzo della cartapesta e di colori su vetro.
Il suo laboratorio alchemico, rivisto e corretto dal suo intuito artistico, dona ad ampolle, provette ed altri strumenti uno scenario magico e interattivo.
Jacob Kunstmann ha recentemente curato l'installazione di uno dei suoi laboratori a Reiss (Oslo).
In Italia: Museo di Minaralogia di Bologna per Bologna 2000, a Riola di Vergato è stato presente nel 2002 nella sala mostre di Alvar Aalto, nel 2004 ha esposto all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna. Attualmente lavora sui ritratti fotografici.

Jacob De Chirico

Ancorata a due alberi, gigantesca attende, la tela di ragno di Jacob De Chirico. Già una preda – un quadro – invischiata fra le corde, penzola inerte e invoca l’autore. La mente allestisce con arte, annoda i pensieri. Solitaria, metodica aspetta al varco l’idea che sfarfalla leggera: una tela ben tessuta non ha paura del vuoto.
Intervistato, il nostro pescatore di quadri volanti muove la bocca senza emettere suono, fa il verso ai commenti didascalici, imita le boccacce dei pesci dietro i vetri degli acquari…
