Comments: In the notes with this deck, it says,

In regards to the Minor Arcana, the choices encompassed: The Giants (primeval forms of energy, fire, snow, and ice; aspects of unbridled nature) became the Wands;

The Vanir (indigenous gods, they were deposed by the Aesir & became their brothers, expressions of nature of the sea, connected with water & fertility) are the Chalices;

The Dwarves & Elves (creators of handmade goods, makers of weapons & jewelry bought by the gods & heroes, symbol of the Earth & material wealth) are the Pentacles.

Finally, Men, instruments of destiny, servants or rebels of the will of the gods, epic heroes, wise magicians, capable rulers or shrewd craftsmen, were assigned the suit of Swords.

The Aesir, supreme gods, take their place among the Major Arcana.

So now you know the layout of this deck. The notes continue & give the names for all of the gods & mortals shown on the cards, some 78 in all. The Swords, as a suit, show a distinct sexuality. This isn't the first deck to show fornication on the Two of Swords, but this is the first deck to show fornicating trees.
