Osho Fool seems to be more in touch with his emotional life. Even aware of possibilities of subconscious dialogue, sees dreams as information. No baggage, no companion, very much has let go of a material portion of himself, no shoe appears on right leg.
The flowers have switched hands, from left to right, assertive in a different way, he knows what he is doing. There is a path for him to follow down below, the RWS Fool has no path, just a likely drop.
I think these comments are very good. I love the rainbow harlequin pattern on the clothing of the Fool. Is that a rose or a lotus he is holding? And do you think that's a path down there? At first blush I thought it was a river, giving us all four elements symbolicly represented on this card.

This seems to me to be the most "traditional" of the majors in this deck. It even is titled "The Fool." Wasn't everything else renamed?
