Inspired by a present of a tarot reading, we developed our own Death card to mark the end of 2013. Contrary to the popular misconception, the Death card actually symbolises change and rebirth, rather than death itself. It is the 13th card in the deck. We de-constructed the traditional card, and created our own visual metaphors for each element, for example ‘The Falling of the King’ which demonstrates that we are all equal.

Other elements include the child playing, represented by a thaumatrope, the seven-pointed Mystic Rose, and Death riding on a horse, which we represented with a passage of text by Seamus Heaney that speaks of transition and change.
