African Orchestra - Playing Cards
This is a 54 card deck of hand illustrated playing cards - ink and watercolour illustrations of classically trained African animals! Each suit represents a different type of African animal and simultaneously a different section of the orchestra. Spades is the strings section played by birds and reptiles; Diamonds is the brass section played by big leathery animals; Clubs is the rhythm section played by the big cats; and Hearts is the woodwind section played by the quadrupedal African animals. The red joker is a jazz band (guest starring a frilled neck lizard!) and the black joker is a heavy metal band! The back design is an intricate African design some of Africa's native flora. The cards themselves are professionally manufactured on 310gsm premium French linen, and come shrink-wrapped inside a durable, clear plastic box. Thank you for supporting my art!
