One Nice Thing: Tarot Card Room Divider

June 23, 2020 | Filed Under One Nice Thing | No Comments

I was searching for a folding screen to use as a background for online meetings (not for my day job!), and came across this wonderful piece:

A three-panel room divider, decorated with images from the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot. The image shows both sides of the divider.

It’s much more interesting than your standard shoji screen!

While I appreciate the importance of the RWS deck, it’s not my primary deck, so I decided on this one:

A four-panel room divider. One side shows Van Gogh's painting "The Irises". The other side shows the painting "The Starry Night".

I couldn’t resist the idea of having “The Starry Night” as a background.

Although I almost went with this one:

A three-panel room divider covered in canvas printed to look like shelves of library books. The photo shows both sides of the divider. There is a bit of fancy wrought iron showing in the right panel of the front side, which is part of a spiral staircase.

but it’s not quite wide enough to cover the area.

The site has lots of interesting art prints and trompe l’oeil pieces, some beautifully carved wooden panels, as well as basic shoji screens.

Poem: Your Names—Zelda Schneurson Mishkovsky

Your Names
Zelda Schneurson Mishkovsky
Translated from the Hebrew by Marcia Lee Falk

Each of us has a name
given by God
and given by our parents

Each of us has a name
given by our stature and our smile
and given by what we wear

Each of us has a name
given by the mountains
and given by our walls

Each of us has a name
given by the stars
and given by our neighbors

Each of us has a name
given by our sins
and given by our longing

Each of us has a name
given by our enemies
and given by our love

Each of us has a name
given by our celebrations
and given by our work

Each of us has a name
given by the seasons
and given by our blindness

Each of us has a name
given by the sea
and given by
our death.
