Tarot of the Journey to the Orient

Written by  on November 26, 2015 

The Tarot of the Journey to the Orient – also known as the Marco Polo Tarot – is based upon the fables told by Marco Polo of his 24 year journey through Asia and the Orient, after his return to Venice. The minors are snapshots of live scenes, whereas the East-meets-West majors are more mythical.
