- New Orleans Voodoo Tarot Set by Martinez
New Orleans Voodoo Tarot and Book Set
by Louie Martinez
The product of African, West Indian, and Catholic influences, Voodoo is a polytheistic religion usually associated with magical and ecstatic rites. With a firm foundation in the classical Tarot, the authors have drawn strong and workable parallels among the Waite and Thoth Tarots, the Voodoo tradition as it is practiced in New Orleans, and the Qabalistic Tree of Life.
Glassman's distinctive and evocative images mirror the face of New Orleans Voodoo that has emerged from the Dahomey tradition of West Africa, as well as from the Creole and South American cultures.
This book and 79-card deck comprise the first Tarot to celebrate an African-American culture in both spirit and imagery.
Explains many of the rituals of the Voodoo religion in the context of a variety of Tarot spreads and readings, adding a completely new dimension to this very ancient tradition of divination and meditation.
