One for Each Hand


Two of Spades

A bit beyond perception's reach
I sometimes believe I see
that life is two locked boxes, each
containing the other's key.

- Piet Hein, "Grooks"

I can't exactly say why, but I think this is my favourite card of them all.

Here is another artistic interpretation of a transformed two of spades:

Artist: Patrick Cuenot

Sensual, erotic transformation playing cards called Emanuelle – each card is different, depicting a sensual scene with the pips a part of the picture.  The backs show a corset and stockings.  I think the person displayed on this card looks a lot like Courtney Love.
