55 picture cards
by Han Wei

Peking artist Han Wei created the paintings for the SHEN HUA deck in a traditional Chinese watercolour style. She has brought together a collection of objects, scenes, and personalities from which we gather inspiration for storytelling, prompted by these depictions of old China, the Central Kingdom.

SHEN HUA’s appealing images originate in the legends and myths of old China. With or without knowledge of the actual tales, we can respond to the pictures with our own associations and so create brand new stories.

Pulled blindly from the deck, each card comes as a surprise, opening its own window into the realm of imagination. As we lay down the selected cards in progression a story develops. SHEN HUA’s images from distant China can show us new inroads to creativity.
