Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“I’ve chosen to interpret “The World” as a beautiful maiden standing the sea cradling the world in her hands. There are dangers afoot – sea monsters inspired by antique, old-world maps. This is my own originial acrylic painting, hand painted on panel. This was a particularly interesting piece to paint – the lighting in it is very surreal, and the composition begs the question – if she is hold the World, where in the universe is the sea in which she’s standing.?”
A maiden stands between the dark and light of a stormy scene, in a turbulent sea, with monsters on either side of her. Within her hands she clutches the world to her chest. This is the end of the journey started by The Fool – after the trials and challenges she has faced, this girl has achieved victory – the world has been given to her, just not quite on a silver platter. This is not the end – there are still storms and monsters out there, but that is a new journey for another time – they’re not approaching her (yet).
This card is a celebration – the culmination of one phase, and a major accomplishment, you should be proud. You have gained experience and resilience along the way, and are now prepared for the next phase to start.
