Symbolism of the Jacks of Diamonds and Hearts in the Old Portrait
of the Dauphiné in France (17th and 18th centuries)
What synthesis to draw from my two interpretations of the figures of the Jack of Diamonds and the Jack of Hearts of the former portrait of the Dauphiné * of the 17th and 18th centuries?
Please read my previous articles and see card illustrations:
The figures of these two playing cards are unquestionably the bearers of esoteric messages or rebus, of which we have today lost the meaning in the absence of the symbolic knowledge attached to them.
However, the probable interpretation that one can make of it, seems plausible with the data of today’s cardological science, which would allow to date the origin of this science long before its rediscovery at the end of the 19th century. This hypothesis remains to be confirmed.
