Now you are just being mean with Noblet. The cards are almost identical. And both obviously shows Christ in Majesty with four evangelist (like on the Speyer gospel image of 1220). With the added interesting detail that they both use the traditional Ecce Homo iconography for Jesus (like on Hieronymus Bosch -Ecce Homo 1496-1500). Actually, Noblet is better because it does not show a naked Christ with his parts showing.robert wrote

I am still searching a Art image that connect "Christ in Majesty with four evangelist" with "Ecce Homo" outside Tarot.
Think about it. Noblet and Vieville work at the same time at the same city. And are both closer to Catholic images that other decks. This must mean something.
But now I am completely out of the Star subject.
