Has anyone noted before, how among several TdM decks, the hill and water lines of the Moon, Star & Maison Dieu, layed out right to left, appear to line up?

I sort of see it in my mini Lo Scarabeo TdM. (Bad pic because I only have by icky tablet camera ) I don't know that it means much, but it is pretty nifty looking.

I can't say if it means anything but it's a pretty cool discovery. Do any of the others line up like that?

The example is from Rochias (Swiss, 18th century). It appears in others too (not always so clear, due to stencilling: differing colours & going across lines etc).

Possibly and probably it is just an artifact of the woodcutting and stenciling process. To be clear, I am not claiming that there is any intentional esoteric or hidden meaning. Just that it is sort of 'neat', and from an artists POV at least, interesting. And of course, such even if an accident can have DM significance, whether intentional or not.

The Rochias trumps, as well as those of several other historical decks, can be viewed at the Tarot de Marseille Heritage site:

I love doing this. I think it was Enrique that got a bunch of us looking at this on the FB group.
