Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“Taking the card’s meaning, I combined the fantasy part with a nautical twist. Turning the dragon with the seahorse, the ‘head’ with a cameo portrait and so on. The diver was created as a unisex character so it relaes to either gender placed in that position.
I have strong connections with this card. The card is described as ‘Imagination, wishful thinking and choices’. Being a visual learner, my mind has always focused on the creative side, using art as messages. The magic and the fantasy are prevalent in my work. I find this card symbolic of my life. I’m constantly faced with many tempting choices pushing me in many directions. There is risk in what I place myself into and hence wh this card fits my personality well.”
A diver is offered a plethora of choices, in a dream-like scene, filled with strange images. Positioned on a stone table under water, each gift is housed in a beautiful shell of various shapes and colors, and they represent the temptations and decisions we face as we go through life. Some are good, others are not, and we must learn to choose wisely – the beauty of some belies danger under the surface, like the snake, symbolizing wisdom, but also poisonous sea krait.
This card shows a dreamer who is so caught up in their fantasies that they don’t actually do anything about them. It advises that dreams are wonderful, allowing us to explore hidden desires and feelings, without risking everything, but that, like everything, they have their time and place.
