Egypt Playing Cards
Available in 3 editions.
One of the most mysterious and enigmatic topics in History is, without doubt, the culture of Ancient Egypt. For many centuries, mighty gods protected the lands of Upper and Lower Egypt, multiplying the glory and wealth of the great rulers. The priests supported the cult of the gods, strengthening their power and influence in the state. The most revered gods of Ancient Egypt were Amon, Anubis, Bastet, Horus, Isis, Osiris, Seth, Toth and Maat. Oftentimes the gods of ancient Egypt were represented as creatures with a human body and an animal head.
The most powerful and most famous rulers of ancient Egypt are Pharaohs: Djoser, Cheops, Akhenaten, Tutankhamun and Ramses II (Winner), among the queens - Hatshepsut and Cleopatra.
However, we can not forget about the sacred symbols and revered animals that brought wealth and health to the house.
For example, a cat in ancient Egypt was considered a sacred animal. The Egyptian key ankh, known as the "key of life", symbolized life, immortality,eternity and wisdom, and was considered a protective sign.
The Scarab is one of the most revered symbols of Ancient Egypt. In Egyptian mythology the scarab was revered as a sacred insect and represented Khepri, the God of the Rising Sun. Thus, it was considered a symbol of the Sun’s power of creation, a rebirth in the afterlife.
Many of these symbols have been included in the design of our decks. When creating the decks, the SVI GROUP team used original papyri and fragments of bas-reliefs of Ancient Egypt. Our staff spent more than a month in Egypt collecting material for the creation of these luxurious and exclusive decks.
