Lightbulb IV The Emperor--Archeon Tarot


Once again, Lantz utilizes moon imagery by placing a large moon in the background, and a smaller one in the foreground. Though I don't see any glaring connections between the Moon and the Emperor, I think that Lantz was simply maintaining the moon-theme.

However, I do think the Native American Chief is a brilliant choice for the Emperor. A NA chief embodies fortitude, strength, stability, intelligence, masculinity, and humble-rule.

The Crow or Raven in the foreground (highlighted by the small moon) may symbolize a Watchful Eye--a level of knowing that is beyond the physical or the obvious.

His strong facial features make appear mature, but not old. He's in the prime of his life, but yet he's wise enough to make sound decisions.

Thanks, FS
