Karl Gerich No.32: Aquae Sulis
Aquae Sulis is Georgina Harvey's second design, in which the double-ended courts are reminiscent of classical gods & goddesses. Aquae Sulis refers to the City of Bath: Sulis was the local Celtic goddess of the thermal springs that still feed the spa baths, which the Romans called Aquae Sulis (the waters of Sulis). She was worshipped by the Romano-British as Sulis Minerva. The four Aces are in formal frames with single-ended Roman scenes, and the set is completed with a double-ended Hermes Joker holding a caduceus and a scroll. The title card features two tigers tamed by a seated lady, probably Sulis herself. The deck was printed by Karl Gerich in 1990.
