Karma Tarot by Birgit Boline Erfurt

Karma Cover 160 In the very first Guess the Deck challenge, Michelle, Silver Lotus and Laurra figured out that it was the Karma Tarot I was hinting at. Good going, gals!

Danish artist Birgit Boline Erfurt describes herself as a painter of "surrealism and suspicious realism", boldly noting, "Let your eyes see a painting by Birgit Boline Erfurt, let your brain work, and extinct animals will speak to open your mind".

With vibrant Dali-esque images, the Karma Tarot stretches the boundaries of realism, but still remains relevant to everyday situations and challenges that we all face–and that the cards often address in a reading.

Karma Tarot LogoBorn in 1944, Erfurt was involved with Karma Music during the publication of the Karma Tarot, which is why the card backings say Karma Music Tarot Cards (rather than simply Karma Tarot).

According to the artist profile cards that accompany this deck,"The Karma Tarot reveals the wedding of gypsy and artist. Boline has lived in both worlds, traveling around the country in caravans with her friends, constantly creating new works, and exhibiting her art in galleries in both Europe and New York."

Below are nine images from the Karma Tarot:

Karma Fool Karma Lilith Karma Hermit

Karma Hanged Karma 9 sw Karma 6c 
 Karma 8w Karma 5 coins Karma Kn Sw 
You can visit the artist's website at http://www.mgnet.dk/boline/frame.html A neat bit of trivia I gleaned from her site: In 1990 her Tarot paintings were used in the movie Notes from the Underground (Cannes Film Festival) by Haymann Production Toronto.

The ISBN for the Karma Tarot is 0-88079-030-X, available at your favorite local or online bookseller. If you don't see it in stock, you may ask for it by name and ISBN number and they will gladly order it for you. You can see more images from this deck at the U.S.Games Systems, Inc. website here.

And the Winner of the Goddess Tarot Set Is…

Noah Picking Winner Small As you probably know, I posted a contest here at the Fool Stop Tarot Blog two days ago…and the result is in!

I compiled all the names (duplicating the ones with multiple chances) and printed them out. Then, I had my 11-year-old son cut the names into strips, put them in his black silk top hat hat and pick a winner. (Yep, that's him! He pulled the winner's name just moments ago.)

Enough already!, you're probably thinking. Just announce the winner!

OK, I shall!

The winner of the Goddess Tarot Book and Deck set is…


Congratulations, Elarbolcelta! Please email me your snail mail address at JanetUSGS@atlanticbb.net and I'll be sure to get your prize out to you pronto.

Everyone, thank you so much for playing along with me! I was thrilled to see over 20 people participate in our inaugural giveaway. WOW! Keep watching the Fool Stop Tarot Blog for more chances to win, because more fun contests are coming soon.

Together, what crime to do they imply?
