The Sun?... women artists


I was looking through my coffee table type book "Women Artists" by Nancy Heller, and I recalled a post by MercyMe:

<"....I would love to be part of a project that would bring a truly feminist tarot into being. I would love to include women icons of the past and the present, representations that were woman-focused, based on women's realities.>

She had a number of suggestions for this. I can't help thinking this picture
by the little-known Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) would make an excellent Sun. The book says... "By 1906 she had given up traditional painting to make the Drawings For the Temple, a series of images she said were dictated to her by her "spritual guides"."

And here's Meret Oppenheim's famous Object (Breakfast in Fur) from 1936. Wouldn't this be a great ace of Cups?

And for the Fool... Miriam Schapiro's High Steppin Strutter I, from 1985.

Sigh... just think of the copyright nightmares.
