In this rare and beautiful screen print published by Gentiane in 1979, Moebius reinterprets one of the cards of the Tarot of Marseilles.
This screen print was printed in a hand numbered run of only 100 copies, and became such an import work that it was later produced into enamel plates.
Taking the figure of The Fool and transporting him into universe of sci-fi and fantasy, the image clearly has elements of Moebius' Starwatcher costumes.
Featuring the 4 suits from the Tarot deck; Cups, Wands, Coins and Swords, many subtle details delight in this screen print, including a mysterious shell amongst the arid desert landscape very reminiscent of the later master work 40 Days in The Desert B.
The image size is square on a sheet of heavy gauge acid-free cartridge paper measuring 458 x 520 mm
This is an incredibly rare print to come across and this is the first time we have ever been able to offer this print in our many years.
