Dedalo Omega Playing Cards by Giovanni Meroni
- Send to a Friend
|Dedalo is strongly inspired by Greek Mythology and tells the story of many characters of Ancient Greece. The Minotaur Asterion, the dark hero Theseus, the beautiful Ariadne and, of course, Dedalo, the genius: he built the Labyrinth, the main location of the story. In Italian, Dedalo is a synonym of "Labyrinth." |
The deck is high-detailed, full of hidden meanings and with accurate references to Mythology.
Dedalo Omega shows the part of the story when Theseus defeated Minotaur and abandoned Ariadne; King Minos is angry with Dedalo and imprisoned him and his family into the labyrinth. He managed to fly away with wax wings - but his son, Icarus, flew too high and his wings were melted by the Sun, Helios. Aegeus thinks Theseus was killed by Minotaur, so he's committing suicide.
The Gods in Dedalo Omega include Dionysus (JoS), Athena (QoS) and Helios (KoS), plus an extra QoS (Artemis).
