Tarot of Masks - Death

Tarot of Masks - The Chariot

Tarot of Masks - The Sun

Tarot of Masks - The Magician

Tarot of Masks - Justice

Tarot of Masks - The Star

Tarot of Masks - The Moon

Tarot of Masks - The Empress

Tarot of Masks - The Lovers

These are... astonishing. Are the masks going to remain white, or will you be decorating them?

Phillip Valdez said...

thank you.
These will stay white-but future ones will get the color treatment (see the samurai mask).

Incredible masks, which wonderfully depict the energies of the Tarot archetypes! Well done!

FYI, there traditionally are 22 (not 26) Tarot major arcana or trump cards. Here's a link with more info:

Yet another incredible series of masks and photos. Does your wife have a blog or website? I'd like to see more of her work.
