The Stone Garden Playing Cards are intricate in detail, and elegant in execution. Inspired by the beautiful gargoyle stone work from medieval times. Their two main purposes were to scare off evil, and to divert rainwater.
It is believed the Catholic Church originally used gargoyle statues as a visual reminder to their Pagan converts, many of whom were illiterate. They were something of a “sermon in stone”, or a warning of sorts to teach the people how to behave in a non-written way.
These playing cards are Intricately designed by Jody Eklund and printed with precision by Legends Playing Card Co. 54 custom playing cards.
The tuck case has gold hot foil stamping
