Russian Tarot of Saint PetersburgA huge rotting head on a battlefield resembles the head in Pushkin's story "Ruslan and Ludmilla". It looks left towards the past. Other symbols of death - skull, sword, fallen warrior, scythe - are scattered about. The raven will feast on the remains.
The Russian Tarot of Saint Petersburg is the final commissioned work of Yuri Shakov, a master in the lost art of Russian miniature painting. The rich, dark images lend themselves to questions regarding the struggle of the human spirit in trying times.
