Le Bateleur I (The Magician) – Tarot series; major arcana

You are called Magician, master of the unseen
But the Fool sees through the illusions of your game
In truth, you were always a deceiver at heart—
A mountebank, a performer; c’est dans les cartes!
You delude and cheat the gullible without shame
Concealing your dupery behind a smokescreen.

Engraving by J. Brown after W.M. Craig, 1813
