LA BARAJA

This version of the Spanish Deck, is actually a polyptych of 40 pieces. It is structured by the four suits of Coins, Cups, Swords and Clubs. Also, each piece represents a card through the number of figures represented.

El Tute, from Italian word Tutti (All), is the game played that gives the value to the cards. The relationship between the value of the card, its place in the set, the ethology of the animal, the composition and the color, gives a meaning to each piece that has to be discoverd and becomes a game for the viewer too.

La Baraja is an allegory of our time, which does not differ so much from the past, and probably from the future.
