The second in my furry tarot card set, the Queen of pentacles (pentacles being represented as mirrors). Like the Queen of Wands, she is dressed like an old-fashioned edo era courtesan, and like all my queens I have incorporated water as part of the kimono design. The geometric pattern in the background is my favorite design - it's also really difficult to paint!

Oh, I've always liked the Queen of Pentacles. This one is my favorite, I think. Furry! Queen! Of Pentacles! Hooray! Congrats on Mod's Choice, this is so cool.

I like it! I do see earth here... very nice idea for tarot cards. I love the geometric pattern also. It looks like you worked very hard on this. Awesome job.

I love the patterns on her kimono, the colors are very beautiful. Ok, I may be wrong about this, but I remember reading somewhere that the courteseans(sp?) tied their obi's (the cloth belt thing) in the front, not the back like it is here. It's not really a big problem anyways, very good overall 2

:-) Brenda Mousseau replies: "Yup, that's correct, when she'd be "entertaining" or working, this represents a more private moment, the kimono is tied very casually and temporarily. Perhaps she's getting ready for a date?"

I don't know much about the symbolism either - but am I right in thinking the flowers on her dress have something to do with it? Anyway, lovely pic, with symbolism or without.

This is the cutest Tarot card I’ve ever seen! I’m loving the rabbit.

Beautiful Rabbit Lady! She reminds me somehow of the Chinese myths about the Bunny on the Moon (together with the Goddess Cheng-O), but this is in Nippon; not China!
