Divine Art Playing Cards turns a regular playing-card deck on its head by combining it with Hindu Mythology. After Ganjifa, this project is one of the first that captures Hindu Mythology in a deck of playing cards. The basis of the Indian worldview is of Cosmic unity underlying the physical diversity of the world. It is through this unity that man transcends himself. Almost every Indian folk artform is based on Hindu mythology. Therefore, for the Kings, Queens and Jacks of each suit, various Gods and Goddesses -- as well as their mounts (vahanas) -- are taken as inspiration. Millions worship these deities daily in India and abroad.
The gold-and-black backs and tuckbox are beautiful and stunning. You'll be proud to show off this deck of Divine Art Playing Cards.

Please note: Although these are brand new decks, you may find some minor creases in the corners of the tuck case and loose cellophane. The cause of this is a combination of the oversize tuck box to accommodate the booklet, and the way they were shipped. Rest assured these are very minor and you still may get a near perfect deck. Without these minor inconsistencies, the deck would retail for twice as much.
