Polish Art Project by Ludmila Bezusko:
Step into the enchanting realm of Tarot with the invitation extended by Polish artist Ludmila Bezusko. Her artistic endeavor unveils each card of the Major Arcana Tarot through meticulously crafted dolls, each imbued with the distinctive symbolism and significance of its corresponding card. Her wellspring of inspiration doesn't solely flow from the Tarot cards themselves, but also from the masterpieces of artists such as Leonora Carrington. This undertaking seamlessly fuses intuition, artistry, and personal introspection. Join us and allow yourself to be swept into the captivating world of Tarot, unraveling the mysteries concealed within these intricate dolls.

Our deep appreciation for Japanese culture and art has brought us into partnership with the esteemed Kyo Ohtake School. Their exceptional craftsmanship blends traditional Japanese elements with a contemporary artistic approach, yielding dolls of deep meaning and captivating aesthetics.
