Pagan Prayer Cards
Before the term Pagan became a pejorative used by Christians, it was used to describe rustic folk—people of the country, those who understood the rhythms of nature and its connectivity to a deeper spirituality. These prayer cards question the validity of themselves by pairing ritualized creatures with made up mantras, while being optimistic that there is something outside ourselves resonating with projected hope.
Creatures were cut from Charles Fréger photos published in National Geographic April 2013. Texts were extracted from an encyclopedia of the animal world.
