Artwork belongs to Ceyda Caba's "So Let's Play!" series.
 
Playing cards first entered Europe in the late 14th century, probably by Marco Polo from China. At that time, there were 4 social classes in France and the symbols of the cards were based on these classes.
 
Hearts: Aristocrats and church,
Spades: The shape of sword represents the army,
Diamonds: Money and commerce,
Clubs: The shape of clover resembles the lowest society and farmers.
 
These 4 suits also correspond to the 4 elements:
 
Spades: FIRE, symbolizing freewill, courage and strength,
Hearts: WATER, standing for love, emotions, imagination and subconscious,
Clubs: AIR, mind, speech and words,
Diamonds: EARTH, signifying wealth and matter.
 
In addition, 12 face cards relate to the 12 months of the year and 12 signs of Zodiac. 2 colors of the deck-red & black-matching are the two halves of the year (summer solstice and winter equinox). The 4 suits - Diamonds, Clubs, Hearts, Spades - match the 4 seasons of the year. Deck holds 52 cards just as there are 52 weeks in a year. All the spots on the cards of the deck equal 365, the number of days in a year.
