King of Swords

November 2015

Dimensions: 11″ x 9″ x 3″

Materials: secondhand wooden plaque, new beaver skull and tooth, secondhand moss, secondhand tack, nature-found sticks

The King of Swords has honed his reason to the point where he only draws his sword when necessary, instead using years of wisdom and intelligence to build a fortress of integrity. Reversed, this card can represent an abuse of information and trust, like a beaver placing a dam where it does more harm to the land than good.
