Baraja Gallega

Baraja Gallega designed by cartoonists and caricaturists Pinto Chinto (David Pintor & Carlos López) in 2002.

“Baraja Gallega” or “La baraja de Galicia”

Baraja Gallega was designed by cartoonists and caricaturists Pinto Chinto (David Pintor & Carlos López) and published in conjunction with a scratch card competition run by the newspaper “La Voz de Galicia” in April, 2002. The prizes included a Hyundai Accent CDRi and 1000 euros in cash. The usual suit symbols have been replaced with objects associated with Galicia: scallop shells, umbrellas, bagpipes and barnacles. The court cards depict Galician historical and cultural personalities such as Rosalia de Castro, Alfonso X and Castelao.
