Marigold Playing Cards
Beautiful hand drawn playing cards, inspired by the celebration of Dia de los muertos. Designed and printed by Noir Arts | NPCC
The main theme of the decks is Day of the Dead, or Día de Muertos – a holiday celebrated in central and southern Mexico. Both decks, named after the flowers have its own colors and symbolism. These cards were created from scratch, and inspired by Fuego Playing Cards and Steve Simpson’s artwork.
Marigold flowers are used to remember the souls of the dead, since it is the traditional flower of the dead. It’s colors are said to represent the force of the sun and life. In Spanish marigold is called Cempasuchil, which comes from Náhuatl and when translated it means “flower of 20 or more petals”, “20 leaves” or “20 flowers”. It also symbolizes sadness and tragedy. Designed by Lev Kushnirenko.
