Just finished up the Chariot; it’s a simple but powerful piece. Instead of horses, the way is cleared by a pair of domestic rats, chewing through the barriers in their way. This evokes not only the rat’s keen ability to survive and thrive even under harsh circumstances, but also the rat’s relationship with Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. Together, these two rodents can set their teeth against whatever’s keeping them from their goal, and by cooperating they can gain ground that much more quickly and effectively. Reversed, though, this card can signify the discord and conflict that destroys such effective partnerships, leaving everyone stuck.
I am overjoyed to say that this is the 52nd assemblage for the Tarot of Bones, which means (other than the extra Happy Squirrel card) I am now two-thirds of the way done! That leaves me six weeks ahead of schedule, and I am ready to make even more art this weekend. Onward to victory!!!
