China Tarot Hermit

I am, by no stretch of the imagination, a tarot expert or scholar, however, I have always felt an affinity to the Hermit, perhaps because the card reminds me of Diogenes, who went about, lantern in hand, looking for an honest man. And I thought I was done buying tarot decks, until I happened upon this image, the Hermit card in the China Tarot, with art by Taiwanese painter Der Jen (Dé Zhēn) (1974-2012). It’s magic. I also find that her Tower card is one of the best I’ve ever seen.
