Nudity Note: the nudity in this card may seem misplaced in the modern age. What it does seek to show is the sexual nature of the card that Aleister Crowley talked about. Is there another way to show this other than a naked woman with a perfect body? Yes, undoubtedly. Lo Scarabeo is a European company and unfortunately do depict their ladies this way. It is my least favourite card in the deck, visually, but is a minor complaint compared to the rest of the way the deck marries three traditions into one.
