Baphomet, The Tarot of the Underworld is a succession of paintings by the Swiss artist, designer and Oscar award-winner H.R.Giger. Baphomet introduces us to the oldest destiny of mankind, visions of birth and death, and the love and hate in the drama of life. Giger's art is interpreted by philosopher-magician Akron. To him tarot is like an inexhaustible mine of symbols, suited to manifest Giger's aesthetics of apocalypse in literary style. Akron resorts to the tradition of tarot in order to convey the messages of Baphomet — a medieval secret symbol — which is of special significance in Giger's work.
