Founded by Sunish Chabba, the Guru Playing Card Company was created to spread and create awareness about Indian folk art art forms using a contemporary style. After a first failed funding try, they relaunch the project even with more power: DIVINE ART.
Divine Art is inspired by the Hindu Mythology using an unique style blending the traditional imagery of gods and goddesses with an interesting pastel colors combination and detailed ornaments. The mysticism of the Indian mythology is present everywhere and everything in the deck has been carefully customized to give a pleasant feeling of tradition and modernity at the same time.
The respect shown by the believers to the deities has been also gathered in the court cards and aces that has been profusely decorated inspired by the traditional Mehndi (henna tattoos) and the block print illustration techniques.
The numbered cards are really original, designed to both keeping the playability of the deck and using some kind of hidden math code to distribute the different pips in a common pattern.
Card back and tuckcase have been redesigned after the lst campaign but the main change is the printer in charge of the production: The Expert Playing Card Company.
Enjoy this cards and remember not to play with money when using it, as it would be considered disrespectful by gods and goddesses. Visit the project website and raise your pledge. All the pledge levels include free shipping worldwide!
