The timeline of the Tarot in 50 imagines

The timeline of the Tarot in 50 imagines is a project I was thinking about, and I have planned and prepared for a while now.
I wanted to create a series of 22 short videos presenting the evolution and the diversity of the design/artwork of the Tarot cards of the so-called Major Arcana.
Although the abundance of the Tarot, respectively Tarot-like Oracles starting from the 20th century is overwhelming, I wanted to keep the videos short and consistent.
Humans are by design imperfect and nothing human-made is perfect but perfectible. I am aware that these videos are not perfect but perfectible. However, considering that I am working all by myself and I have done everything all alone, at this point, with my current resources and at my current level of spiritual development, this is what I was capable to put together and deliver. I am sure there will be others to come and do, hopefully, a much better job!

The 1st video of the series is The Magician https://youtu.be/G-S6KKO2I_U
The 2nd video is The High Priestess https://youtu.be/Mc7ZBUbZeKc
The 3rd video is The Empress https://youtu.be/-mGjN2x9Mfc

The traditional interpretation of the card:

Nature, fertility, marriage, love, material growth, abundance, beauty, seduction, desire, creativity, endurance.
Frigidity, infertility, rigidity, poverty, material losses, dissipation, waste, instability, inconsistency, superficiality, frivolity.
