Sometimes artists in their search of various artistic forms and senses try to cross completely different things. Here is an example of this. A Costa Rican artist, Ana Zuniga, crossed her vision of Christian Mythology with… citrus plants.
It’s clear that stained-glass windows are strongly associated by her with Christian Mythology. I subjectively can’t say that these court cards unambiguously reflect Christian Mythology because this isn’t the first thing the pictures make me think about. But they definitely are pleasant artworks reflecting the art of stained-glass windows. She nicely incorporated signs of citrus plants into the design of the playing card artworks. Unfortunately, all court cards are almost the same – only “black” and “red” suits are indicated by main green / light-green and orange colours – lime and tangerine with notes of lemon.
These artworks were her academic work. Playing card has the bridge size. The deck hasn’t been produced.
