Knave of Chalices


In youth it is not always possible to distinguish between the emotions that will last and those that will vanish in the morning.

The Image

A young noble knave, in Balinese dress and hairstyle, looks into a chalice with a questioning air. From the chalice a dream-fish emerges and looks at him.

Simple Meaning

Adolescence, studious youth, a curious person, contemplative spirit.

Advanced Meaning

The fish that emerges from the chalice is an ancient symbol that indicates the materialization of the mind's imaginings. Therefore, the unexpressed question that the knave asks the chalice of water is actually a question to himself. In the Knave of Chalices we are faced with hunger for emotions and sentiments and inexperience in dealing with them.
