Join me on my short interview with Creator Carrie Paris (www.carrieparis.com)
What led you and Roz to the theme of revolution?
Carrie: "There were many political revolutions and uprisings happening around the world so we wanted to make a deck that would reflect both. We went back in history and looked for images that paired with revolutions. So for example, the Tower card is the storming of the Bastille in France, which was was the flashpoint of the French Revolution".
You know what I am really asking - What about my card?
Carrie knows I always ask about the Anchor Card!
Carrie: "OH of course, your card, the Anchor is also connected to the Ship card: Both images are from the ships at the Boston Tea Party (Dec 16, 1773), a political protest where British tea was thrown into the Boston harbor to protest British Parliament's tax on tea. "No taxation without representation." The British government responded harshly and the episode escalated into the American Revolution!"
The Moon is taken from an astrological clock gifted to Louis XVI. The Birds are swans, Empress Josephine’s favorite bird and an emblem that can be found everywhere at her Chateau de Malmaision (dinner plates, furniture, tile floors, etc.). The Tree: This is a Liberty Tree where the people of France and America would dance the Carmagnole around it. La Carmagnole is the title of a French song that French revolutionaries would preform while meandering through the streets of Paris during the Revolution. Decorating the tree are red hats known as a Phrygian cap or Liberty Cap, which signified freedom over the Crown. .........OK, I think I may have overwhelmed you with a long history lesson built into the LR."
ME: Headblown.... watch the video!
