Ace Of Cups
Digital Art - Digital Painting
A mysterious hand emerges from the waters holding a golden chalice from which pours five streams of water. A dove perched on the side of the cup drops in a coin with a cross on it. In the waters float lotus flowers.
This is the "Ace of Cups" one of the Tarot cards. It's full of a lot of symbolic meaning:
The cup represents the subconscious.
The five streams represent the senses as well as emotions and intuition.
The hand represents ones self awareness of their spirituality.
The sea of lotus blossoms indicates spiritual awakening.
The dove is symbolic of divine love.
I get requests from time to time to make tarot themed art. I've found that I really enjoy the symbolism behind the elements of a card.
The ace of cups was particularly fun as the image lends itself to surrealism more so than other cards.
I've made one slight change to this image from the traditional Ace of Cups. Typically, the hand would be coming out of a cloud, but I felt that the hand coming out of the water unified the scene better - so I used my artistic license and changed it :D
