Bēhance: Medley’s Playing Cards by Deeksha Kumar

04 Sep

Medley’s playing cards designed by the Indian artist Deeksha Kumar. She created them for the company to be given away with bottles of Medley’s bourbon on the occasion of Diwali. It was a limited release.

Diwali or Deepavali (popularly known as the “festival of lights”) is a five-day Hindu festival and an official holiday in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Mauritius, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, Malaysia, Singapore and Fiji. It falls between mid-October and mid-November.

Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. People keep on these lamps during the night and clean their houses in order to make the goddess Lakshmi feel welcome. Also they blast firecrackers as they believe that it drives away evil spirits. All the celebrants wear new clothes and share sweets and snacks with family members or friends during this holiday.
