18th century French illustration of the Seven Celestial Spheres with Earth at the center.
- The original plate is antique and has an aged patina. This distressing is mostly seen in the border, but it can also be seen in the artwork. For example, there are splotches in the spheres that I did not clean up when I restored it to preserve the antique vibe.
You can use these reading mats for tarot spreads, Lenormand layouts, charm casting, divination dice, altar cloths, and more!
These mats are a gorgeous addition to any altars and distinguished reading spaces - I don’t quite know what the technical name is for the material but it is perfect for laying cards onto. It has a tactile weightiness, which allows you to move cards around easily, doesn’t rumple like fabric, is very easy to fan out and scoop up cards from. And its celestial atmosphere frames any spread beautifully. Works well for a 5 card “cross” spread (i.e can fit 3 cards high of most standard decks) and lengthwise can fit more. I’m very happy with this and hope that there are more on the way. — Roger W. about the Celestial Spheres mat.
