The tower of the tarot represents punished pride.
The tower card is a warning: be careful not to flaunt your success too much, not to be too conceited or arrogant with others, otherwise this will lead to harsh punishment.
Inspired by the Marseilles tarot, printed in the same city by François Chosson in 1735, Leo De Carlo transforms two-dimensional images into sculptural figures.
From paper to glass, the artist offers the opportunity to show the symbology drawn in a three-dimensional way: this allows for details, shapes and colors to be added, in order to emphasize the meaning behind each Major Arcanum.
Thanks to the interpretative ability of master Mario Furlan, the Murano Tarots become the tool for discovering the European esoteric culture of the last 300 years.
