empty spaces on the cards


Is there a reason for the cards to have empty space ?

Some cards are so busy. In the 4 of pentacles & the 5 of cups for example the tops of these cards are empty, it's like dead air.
There are a few more but most cards are mostly full.

Just wondering & thanks for any replys.


Hey, i'm new here lol
well, the empty spaces seem to be concentrating and emphasising the loss of the 5 of cups, and the money in the 4 of pentacles. the sorrow or holding on to money seems to be in the centre-ish of the card , like the juggling in the 2 of pentacles so you cant help but read and interpret that symbol.

Just an idea
