Bēhance: Irish Legends Playing Cards by Vivian Hansen

These are playing card artworks designed by an American artist, Vivian Hansen. She devoted them to Irish legends and appropriate heroes. The cards feature Cú Chulainn, Queen Méadhbh, Fionn mac Cumhaill, and Áengus. Each character has a story involving some animal. Appropriate animals have been paired with appropriate characters. The stylization is based on the Book of Kells and other illustrated manuscripts featuring Irish myths. Unfortunately, all courts are the same for different suits.

The artist is open for propositions to produce the deck.
