Starwatcher : The Fool

Starwatcher : The Fool

In this rare and beautifully executed enamel plate, Moebius reinterprets one of the cards of the Tarot of Marseilles for Champaka. He takes the figure of The Fool (also known as the Jester) and transports this wayfarer of fortune into the arid landscape of his “Starwatcher” universe. The image retains all the depth and nuance of colour so meticulously conceived by the artist, and it is particularly enhanced by the handsome square format of the enamel plate.
When this card is drawn, the interpretation is ambiguous. The Fool is a tightrope walker given to risk. By turns he can appear wonderful, or quite mad. One thing is certain: to draw this card is to signal change, whether willed or not.
