Cerulean more kudos...

The use of the womanly being pulled by swans actually does have a wonderful allegorical reference to Venus being pulled by swans in the Ferarra Hall of Months in the following allegory of April:

And Mars is actually kneeling before her.

The only other tarot that I know of that uses a similar detail is the Citta Ferrara by Amerigo Folchi

I'm delighted that there are elements of the medieval intermixed with stunning original really makes the deck allegories sing for me.
