Artist's Description

Pencil drawing on 9″×11″ sketchbook paper coloured on computer The Hermit (IX) is the ninth trump or Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks.The Hermit has internalized the lessons of life to the point that he is the lesson. The Hermit, as a kind of shamanistic hero, has made the complete journey – both the withdrawal and the return. As Joseph Campbell said, “A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.” The card shows an old man carrying a staff in one hand and a lit lantern containing a six-pointed star in the other.
I decided to show the Hermit as a cloaked woman carrying a staff and instead of a lantern I put a candle.
