This stunning, colorful tarot bag features beautiful West African women in traditional dress, adorned with feathers and bright beads. They appear to be walking to or from the market, carrying and balancing baskets full of bounty. The women's clothing and jewelry are lightly accented with metallic gold tracing.
Bese Saka is a West African symbol of abundance, prosperity, and unity because of the role agricultural trade plays in bringing people together. Bese Saka means "bag of kola nuts," and refers to the main cash crop of much of west Africa, particularly Ghana.
Deck suggestions: This bag is perfect for any African or Afro-Caribbean tarot cards, like the African American Tarot, or colorful multicultural decks like the Tarot of the Ages or the Motherpeace Round Tarot Deck. With this bag, we like the Chrysalis Tarot, shown with this tarot bag in the picture.
A simplified version of the Bese Saka symbol (shown below) appears as a repeating pattern on the dress of one of the women depicted.
