1-At the times when the first Tarot de Marseille were used for a game most of the people were illiterate.
They can t count the numbers of batons for example.So I think they had a visual memory.
2-So why thus deniers are unnumbered.For what ?
3-We know pips were first,then came the 22.
I m agree that there were no connection between the 56 and the 22 in Italians decks,but once entered in France the iconography of the 22 were altered.Just for me of course. (Temperance as an example )
4-Using the Italian Tarot Game concept about "triumph",a threesome left me inquiring a lot ...
a-Temperance triumphed over Death : I m agree of course.
b-Devil triumphed over Temperance ? : I m not agree. (Isn t called XIIII as an Angel ? )
a-L Hermit triumph over Ivstice ?
b- La Lvne triumphed over Le Maison Dieux ?
6-If there is a couple may be the strongest where I m agree is La Force over La Rove de Fortvne if we assumed the last as a depiction of Destiny forces.
Till the next Rudolph...
The Universe is like a Mamushka.
