I think I'll leave it though, unless anyone objects - if nothing else it's an example of how easy it is to misinterpret an image. I know that somewhere there is an image from The Children of the Planets that shows a magician-like figure complete with table, objects etc. - I'll try to find it.
Or could it be that our tarot magician is really a dentist...?
