King of Wands,  2022

pen on paper

8 x 10 inches

I'm really into Bulgaria and the Byzantine culture which was an empire located in areas near the Black Sea. I wanted to use a King, but I wanted the symbols to be more Byzantine, with rich colors from that - the purples and reds in their fabrics, and the pearls. I have a crown, a throne and a scepter like the traditional card, but I didn't include the dragon and tree symbols. I would be curious to know if there's anyone in the audience who is interested in Bulgaria or the Byzantine empire.
