Dream

The art graphic Dream, like some others, was inspired by the Tarot Cards and the legend, which connectets these cards to the Knights Templars.
The Tarots are mostly associated with fortune telling, but there is an ancient and much more fascinating site to them. One of the legends or theories, is that they were created by The Knights Templars.

The Templars were a Christian military order, as well as a secret society whose true purpose remains uncertain debated to this day.
One of the miths/legends around the order, tells that, when the Knights arrived to The Holy Land, they discovered secret parts of Christianity’s history/origines. A secret which they could not reveal, in their time.
Therefore they created the Tarot Cards, in which they communicated their secret knowledge, in the symbols, which we can still see on the cards today.

One of the Tarot cards is called “Seven of Cups”, which speaks of dream, choices and balance between them. That was the thought behing this graphic.

Since there are several references to the Tarot, in this page, it seemed appropriate to enclude a link to a page, which provides the magic key to the origine of this fascinating mistery. The page encludes pictures of the first cards ever designed.
