Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“For my Two of Cups design, I decided to concentrate of symmetry and give digital coloring a shot. I also wanted to experiment more with layering, so I collaged maps and other nautical drawings of mine into the background.. Since the card card can symbolize different types of partnerships, I decided to go in the direction of the two characters acting like colleagues instead of lovers. In my own ife, I have more professional relationships than personal ones, so the theme is a reflection of my current status.”
Against a backdrop of maps and charts, two mermaids raise a cup to each other. But these are not just two mermaids, they are identical, possibly sisters, possibly twins. Definitely two halves of the same coin – opposite, but equal in every sense. A union of two that share a deep bond of love, and while it is not a romantic love, it is heartfelt and pure. They toast each other with cups of gold to celebrate their connection, yet each is weighed down by an anchor, representing the commitment that comes with binding love, not to be thrown away lightly.
This card represents the bonds we want – to feel whole, to be loved and respected – that feeling of a “meeting of the minds”, where everything just fits, in perfect harmony with another – lover or friend.
