XVI - The Tower

49.00

The Tower is being destroyed, its top shattered by lightning from a clear sky, people thrown clear and falling to earth. This card represents swift and dramatic change, often upsetting but full of potential for change. A tower can serve as a fortress, or a prison; the lightning symbolizes the the sudden flash of insight that breaks down old beliefs to make room for new ones.

While the origins of tarot lie in the middle east, the first tarot cards were created in northern Italy during the 15th century, and were used for card games before evolving into tools of divination.

This pendant features an Italian print of one of the earliest examples of historic tarot artwork. The artwork demonstrates the original Italian color scheme of oranges and blues, highlighted by two borders of Swarovski crystals, and is encased in an antiqued bronze bezel. 

Stately and mysterious, this pendant weighs over 2 oz/50g and is a stunning focal point for any outfit, modern or historic. Arrives in a Studio Kittie gift box, complete with an adjustable black silk cord, ready to wear.

Dimensions: 48x24mm.
