The Mysteries of Mary Tarot Deck, Hettienne Grobler, 2016.

The Mysteries of Mary Tarot Deck, Hettienne Grobler, 2016, 5 1/8 x 3 5/8 inches. Grobler is an artist, mystic, pilgrim, and wisdom seeker from Cape Town, South Africa. She writes, “The Mysteries of Mary is a wisdom path of the myth and the metaphor of Our Lady as reflected in the archetypal tradition of the tarot. Each card captures (or is) a shrine that is a story about Mary. Together, the cards, when read together, become a rosary of cards, “creating a sacred Rose Garden. Following the traditional format of a tarot deck, the suits are Suit of Vessels, Compassion; Suit of the Holy Rood, Beauty and Transformation; Suit of Distaff, Weaving and Sewing in the world; and Suit of Roses, the Cosmic Rose and Wise Woman.
