The Western Snowy Plover & the Ten of Cups
• The western snowy plover and the ten of cups • 12” x 16” linoprint on 100% cotton paper
This is the first block of the series titled, “Endangered Tarot.” This deck will contain an assortment of endangered and threatened animal and plant life to raise awareness.
Most if not all of these threatened and endangered species have been forced into these classifications of demise by the hands of colonialism through climate catastrophe. The snowy plover in particular has had difficulty breeding in their habitats on coastal waters because of disturbances from activities of humans and their animals as well as rising sea levels caused by the accelerated melting of land-ice which is rapidly transforming our coastlines.
To summarize this card, the ten of cups, when pulled upright represents harmony within communal bonds, fulfillment, emotional stability and security.
The combination of these two elements, the ten of cups and the western snowy plover exemplify a different trajectory for their future.
