The deck arrives in a silk-screened dark and white paper slipcase with a wraparound in a similar marbleized paper encasing the pack. There are many artistic decks out there, and the majority of them can be used to read with, to some degree, but this deck is mainly used for the artist's expression. Using the 22 Majors as a format, this limited deck intends to show the artist's vision. The cards bear titles in Italian, however not the customary ones, and a few cards appear to have completely new ideas. Tarocchi Delle Origini, which interprets of in English to Tarot of Origins. The subject is by all accounts, Primitive Man. The illustrations stand out, the refined pen, ink, and watercolor craft of the artist Sergio Toppi are captivating.

This deck is for individuals who are drawn to native art and portrayals of prehistoric man.
