This deck's theme is mythological goddesses. It is one of the few decks I've seen with much of a mix of racial types on the cards. Even so, this deck depicts almost no American deities -- North, Central, or South America are all ignored! While there is a Chinese goddess, the only Japanese one is Ukemochi, one you don't hear much about. (When she dies, her body becomes various types of food - rice plants, cows, grains, and so on.) They don't even use Amaterasu, the Japanese Sun Goddess, for the obvious choice as the Sun card! They use "the Zorya", three sister goddesses that are servants of the sun god in old Russian mythology. Further, except for the court cards, the minor arcana are all 'pips'. If they'd used more goddesses, especially from the Americas and Asia, they could have had a goddess on every card... I'm not saying I don't like the deck, it's just that I think it could have been improved by adding more goddesses and from more mythologies. (And I'd also love to see a dec k done up using the Goddess artwork of the late Susan Seddon Boulet. While I don't always agree with the way she depicted the goddesses, her artwork
