Loteria Cosmologica

 

1996-2008

 

By Luis Delgado (1996)

2008 edition of a classic

15 copies and 3 artist proofs

41 Cards numerically printed on board with pigment inks, varnished and backed with textured paper. Sleeved in individual titled envelopes, custom linen covered box with instructions in Spanish and English.

 

Loteria Cosmologica is a titled deck of cards akin to the Tarot in that it can be used for divination and self-enlightenment. The cards depict iconographic images of universal human values and attributes focusing on the relationships between man and nature and on the structure of society. As you play this game, use the card titles as messages for interpretation and divination. During play, a single card begins to reveal your story, the combination of your entire hand deepens the revelation, and the final interpretation comes from within you.

Who is Cedric Tlapaltototli?

 

Inheritor of the post-classic tradition of Choluleteca pottery making, incanted by a mixed-breed English avatar now residing in Califrisco San Fransonia, bears witness to the nefarious manipulation of an enlightened text rooted deep in the storied Magna Carta, the code of Hamurabi and other texts of human import. In which he meets two nefarious characters, Dick the Dark Prince and his smirky sidekick who by hook and by crook muddily modify the aforementioned text to lead us into a world populated by infamous totalitarians solidifying the tradition of violence and outright disregard to the hard fought gains of the human race in its valiant attempt to further the animal kingdom. With "Deconstitution" and self-perceived self righteousness these nefarious characters attempt to curtail, trim and manipulate a hard-fought code of enlightened human behavior. In this publication by Refrita Press, Cedric marks salient points of this manipulation in hope and faith that the original intent and its progressive evolution lives on.
