GAIA Playing cards. The most natural beauty

Mother Earth, Nature and the ability to self-regulate and remain immutable (despite our constant attempts to destroy it) is the inspiration for this beautiful deck: GAIA.     The idea of life on our planet as something that co-evolves with the environment to maintain the balance was interpreted by James Lovelock in 1969 through his GAIA hypothesis.
