In the Tarot of the Moors, designer / author / artist Gina Thies draws inspiration from the 800+ year multicultural history of the Andalusian Moors. In the introduction to the accompanying book, Thies states that her aim was to "depict... the influence of all three Abrahamic religions" -- Muslims, Jews, and Christians. Many of the major arcana have been retitled to fit the theme; "The Empress", for example, becomes "The Sultana". The court cards have been retitled as: "Princess" (= Page / Princess); "Emir" (= Knight / Prince); "Malika" (= Queen); and "Malik" (= King). The cards are gilt gold.
