I just got this deck/book set and will be studying it soon, I'll start with the Fool. Just wanted to stick my hand up and say "hi" in this group

ETA:
So this post doesn't get removed, here is some actual discussion of the card! About that butterfly...the first known depiction of a butterfly in art is on an Egyptian wall painting. So the butterfly on this card not only makes me think of innocence, freedom, and new life because it's a butterfly, but because it's a depiction of a butterfly in an ancient Egyptian setting. A butterfly from the days of the earliest butterfly artwork!

I don't think it's the same kind of butterfly as in the tomb painting, I kinda wish it were.

Like the last line of "The Name of the Rose," paraphrased: the butterfly dies, but the picture of the butterfly remains. Forever warm and still to be enjoyed...now I'm totally skipping centuries between quotations The second one is from Keats' poem "Ode to a Grecian Urn."

(I'm not saying that no one but ancient Egyptians ever painted butterflies before, but if they did, that artwork hasn't been found. Who knows, there might be a butterfly on a prehistoric cave painting that hasn't been discovered yet!)
