Lovers and Chariot

Here are two more Major Arcana cards from my 1992 CorelDraw Tarot. The "Lovers" card unites the yellow-black path on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. Other versions of this card have a lot of added symbolism loaded onto them but I wanted to concentrate just on the two figures. I also wanted one to be darker than the other, to signify an interracial couple. I bypassed most of the "traditional" symbolism on the "Chariot" card as well, using the famous Fascist historical character of Mussolini to evoke the headlong pride and power-madness of the "Chariot."
