DeviantART: Playing Cards by weirdo-mess

These playing card artworks were created by a Finnish artist, weirdo-mess (nickname). I guess they are devoted to some kind of demons or satyrs. Don’t be surprised. In accordance with Greek mythology in 6th-century BC, human legs were common for satyrs.  They acquired their goat-like aspect through later Roman conflation with Faunus, a half-men, half-goats in Roman mythology. Satyrs became nearly identical with fauns under the influence of Roman mythology. So, satyrs commonly described in Latin literature as having the upper half of a man and the lower half of a goat, with a goat’s tail in place of the Greek tradition of horse-tailed satyrs
