Take a step back-in-time to Fifteenth century Africa, a land untouched by the western world. A Nation where arts and entertainment were more than a vehicle of self-expression, they were a way of life.
Lost Wax playing cards are a tribute to the West African land of intrigue-kingdoms, where wonder was traded in place of gold.
Designed by Olutade Abidoye, these West African playing cards feature a vibrant color palette and back-design that emulates gorgeous tapestries from the era. In addition, art connoisseurs and history buffs alike will delight in a set of custom court cards that honor native paintings and etchings of the period.
Printed by the United States Playing Card Company and packaged inside a custom box featuring gold foil and embossed accents.
