Suit of Onions
Part of the set, Cuisine Cards. Inspired by images of the willy-nilly layout of plates of various playing cards by 17th c. German printers, this set has four different foods as the suits and a hierarchy-free set of face cards: the Shaper (cook), Mover (wait staffer) and Taster. Each suit is set in a different part of the world, somehow connected to the particular food.
The various words and ancient scripts included in the image all say the same thing, in contemporary english and in languages closer to the original cultures.
