It is hard to think about certain gods and goddesses without their animal component. The Egyptian pantheon is an obvious place to start: Ra, the eagle-headed sun god, the cat-headed Bast and the lion-headed Sekhmet. Other traditions also feature Ganesh the elephant-headed god, Durga riding her tiger, Sedna with her whales. Then we have the gracious deities that are always in the company of animals: the Greek goddess Artemis with her deer and dogs, the Celtic goddess Rhiannon and her horses and Eostre with her hare. So many wonderful divine animals to share!
I love this deck!! The artwork is gorgeous and the card descriptions are really helpful, but the deck is so intuitive I hardly even need them!
