Red eyes


Why does the King of Swords have red eyes?
And the man in the Chariot has red eyes too, but not the same, his pupils aren't red, just around them.....what could that be saying about MR Chariot? Or his he just very tired from being to determined?

Well, that really depends on what version/printing of the deck you have.

Neither of those figures have red eyes in my Pam B although they do both have splotchy red faces.

The same (red splotchy faces, but no red eyes) is true for all four printings of the Original RW (which is based off the Pam B).

My Blue box Rider doesn't have splotchy faces or red eyes.

My printed in Switzerland yellow-box Rider doesn't have those features.

I could maybe see it in my printed in Italy yellow-box Rider.

And I can kinda see it in my printed in Belgium Giant Rider-Waite.

I also don't see it in my printed in Switzerland mini RWS.

So, not all Rider Waites are created equal....

Funny, I was wondering if it was maybe my certain deck or because it's Universal Waite so the colors are a bit bolder.

Yes, the eyes are red in my Universal Waite also.

As I said earlier, not all Waites are created equal....
