The future is for projection, we shall not fear it, the past is to learn from it , and we shall not fear it, the present is for living, being aware of life and yourself, and we shall not fear it either... although sometimes people tend to look for an external push to help them find their way again through all the doubts and insecurities... those moments are great for introspection, for consulting with your loved ones and for... asking your oracle!
I have made a series of 30 illustrations representing 30 plants that, with great historical presence, have accompanied human beings both on a botanical and medicinal level and on a magical and spiritual level. I'm hanging originals here and final designs.
The deck consists of the 30 herbaceous cards and another 10 containing information tables with the meanings of each plant, in 5 languages: Spanish, English, German, French and Italian. Totaling a deck of 40 cards.
The aesthetic line of this work is influenced by the traditional botanical illustration and the line and gestures of the medieval miniatures, so peculiar and authentic, that will sprinkle it a little bit of that magic and special atmosphere that the classic Tarots of Marseille and Visconti have, but with a more bucolic country spark.

Who we are
I'm Amaya, creative by profession and driven by a witchcraft spirit...
My studies... well, the typical ones with very long and pompous names: I'm Higher Technician in Graphic Arts and Design in Illustration and I have a degree in Management and Dissemination of Historical-Artistic Heritage (I challenge you to read everything without breathing). The fact is that I try to make the most of coronavirus impasse, and the result is an effort to unite several of my great passions: illustration, botany and mystical folklore... et voilà!
I have another project that has been going on for a few years now, although it has nothing to do with this one, you might be curious... I'm the creator of the t-shirt brand Manojito de Claveles, in case someone is curious about other places, works and creative experiences.
Once the crowdfunding campaign is over, the printer will take 10 to 15 days to deliver the printed decks to me; by that time I will have the packaging ready so in 2 more days I will be able to make all the deliveries by post; within Spain it usually takes 3 to 6 days until the order is received. For shipments abroad, it can take from one week to 15 days in Europe, and outside Europe it varies a lot depending on the country.
As I have pointed out above this is an intimate and personal project, it does not have its own website and I do not know if other similar initiatives will arise from it... time will tell... so I can only incorporate my PERSONAL INSTAGRAM to this section, it is public, but BEWARE: I hang drawings, plastic and installation occurrences, reflections on art, etc... on pagan festivals, folklore, meditation, mysticism and witchcraft...BUT! I warn you... Also when I go to collect fungi with my family or the aphid pests on my plants ... :) TAKE CARE OF YOURSEL AND OTHERS, AND SPREAD MAGIC AROUND THE WORLD!
