This time, it is the Page of Swords who comes slicing towards us, brandishing what looks more like a dagger than a sword. His outfit is reminiscent of the costumes in a film noir, dapper with its white scarf and trilby. And there is something almost Picasso-esque about the lines that cut across both him and the strange landscape around him.
It's as though the surroundings, and even the Page himself, are unformed. They need to be seen and processed by the Page's mind before becoming real.
An interesting perspective on perception and the power of the mind, which fits well with the Page. He hasn't yet quite figured out what to do with all the information coming in, but cobbles it together as best he can, learning and polishing his understanding as he goes. Of course, the film noir feel would also fit with traditional interpretations of this Page as a sneak and a spy...
How might your perception be distorting a situation you are troubled by? What can you learn from your current experiences?
