Death is Key Thirteen in the TIKOT major arcana.

Clysdalles version of the traditional tarot's most recognisable card departs entirely from the histioric symbology of its European counterparts. Gone are the images of the dead and dying from all classes, including kings, bishops and commoners. Nor are the familiar crashing towers, the rising sun or the mystic rose evident. Eerie in its starkness, to look upon Clysdalle's death head and crossed maori spears is to lock gaze with our unavoidable future, the shedding of flesh to all men's ultimate destination.

The Fool is Key Zero in the TIKOT! Major Arcana.

Big Toe's Ke Hupo (the Fool) is a hysterical sendup of Pamela Colman Smith's image from the Rider-Waite Tarot of the early 1900's. All the original elements are here: The mad vagabond now a grinning wooden tiki stepping off a cliff without a care in the world while his companion dog, usually potrayed as nipping at his heels, now a bug eyed beast takes a sizable bite of his ass. He still carries a satchel for his journey and a hybiscus, showing his appreciation of beauty. The number Zero is a perfect significator for the Fool, as it can become anything when he reaches his destination. Zero plus anything equals the same thing. Zero times anything equals zero.

The Magician is Key One in the TIKOT! Major Arcana.

Brad Parker, Hawaiian visionary artist featured this month on the cover and in a full color four page spread inside Tiki Magazine actually called me while I was writing the above sentence! Spooky! We chatted briefly about his thought process on the Magician and how he enjoyed the challenge of working within a strict theme.

Rich in symbolism, Brad gives us a powerful tiki magus with the infinite as a halo floating above his head. The embodiment of male power of creation, willfulness and desire... but is he a wise medicine man or a snake oil salesman? Only the Wizard knows. He stirs a great overflowing tiki chalice with his swizzle staff as the sword of intellect pierces a cocktail cherry beside a coin representing solid possessions and hard work. Around his neck a lei replaces the traditional waist sash of ouroboros as he gestures toward the ground. With this gesture the magician bridges the gap between heaven and earth, the divine motive in man.

The Devil is Key Fifteen in the TIKOT! Major Arcana

McEvoy & Rodriguez surf a new wave of young pop surrealists currently enjoining popularity on the left coast and their solution to a satanic TIKOT! assignment speaks as much of their process as their influences. Simultaneous collaborators, they work in tandem elaborating on each others work upon the same canvas and occasionally changing directions entirely. Here they have given us a devil girl right hand raised in opposition to the left handed benediction of the Hierophant. She is the embodiment of physical attraction, lust, sexuality, animal instincts and vice. Her left hand cradles a fiery serpent coiling to the earth. Her horns attack the heavens and indicate the top of a reverse pentagram, the overturning of order and the triumph of matter over spirit. However, around her neck she wears the keys which may unlock us from our taste for the darkness. The heart key acknowledges the card's connection to The Lovers. Both cards speak to our drives; the drives that take us out of the garden. The Devil, is the adversary but sometimes, our best and only ally for the Devil’s own torch can light our escape from the temptations of the underworld.

Hodaddy!

I love your descriptions of all the pieces in the show! (You make mine almost sound like it makes sense!)

Er... I've spaced on closing date? Is the show still up now?

Mahalo!
Eric

ok im replying because I am really not happy about this.Now the reason is my posts have been deleted and this is clearly a plagiarizer at it's best. I have my ideas saved and logged and dated. I am the designer of the idea of the tiki tarot I said about finiding artists here on the forum and was laughed at. I own found this post that it has been created by a forum member not myself but someone else. I have to say it isn't funny and I am very very hurt that this has happened. It certainly isn't this artists magical idea but mine. How can you live with yourself stealing my idea?
I have images saved to usb and dated of my designs.
That is even the name of my tarot deck so...I want to know how this is even legal.

I will be seeking legal advice very very soon. As you all know especially admin I did post a longtime ago during that year the idea on here and everyone said no to helping with me designs.
this is illegal!

mine is dated 2007..! so we have a major problem here with legalities. I'm going to have to take this further as, it's my idea and well....I'm very hurt that my posts were removed from here about the TIKI TAROT and it's the name my deck is called. So, we have a major issue here

Under the id FaeMagic I spoke about tarot and tikis frequently so this idea is not new I also have my images cataloged and dated. This is beyond a joke what this user has so called dreamed up as their own idea.
