Joker’s House of Cards

Joker's House of Cards

10″ x 6″  Joker’s House of Cards is a shrine type assemblage. The crafted fool’s wand takes center stage, depicting the dangers of the wild card Joker.

A neverending ring of cards frames the joker’s image – a version of which I have always been unnerved by.

Antique cookie cutters of the suits adorn the piece and act as icon above the doorway. This joker relates himself to the Jack of Diamonds – an indication of his greed. The outside walls and stack of cards above are adorned and comprised of diamond knaves.
