Alejandro Jodorowsky tarot cards

Alejandro Jodorowsky (1929 – ) is born in Il Chile is a director, author, comics writer and spiritual guru.
Other than his numerous cult films such as Santa Sangre (1989), El Topo (1970), Fando & Lys (1968) and The Holy Moutain (1973), he is more than interested in the occult.
This lead him to spend almost a decade reconstructing the original form of the Tarot de Marseille. He said he also vividly remembers how, at 20, he first saw an old (and, he said, naked) woman in his native Chile give a tarot reading, and was instantly intrigued. He has been a collector of tarot cards ever since.
Below you’ll find some photos of the ones he helped to reconstruct :
