Re: "The Gift" movie, what is that deck?

i found it interesting that she used it for reading, as usually the purpose of the cards is to test telepathic or precognitive skills.

the symbols are pretty universal, so i could see how they might work for divination, but because there are so few symbols used, i don't think they would be my first choice for a divination deck.

i do however, see that there could be advantages to a deck with repeating symbols. having more than one of an image turn up would certainly speak loud and clear.

i have long been infatuated with the farschian fortune telling deck, and plan on buying it from tarotgarden in the very near future. it has only 18 images which repeat. i believe repeating images are common among persian decks.
