In this card, we see a city from afar, rising up from the sea. It is cradled in a surrounding forest by a monumental cup. The church spire is prominent, and the sun rising above the cup resembles the host in the Christian sacrament of the Eucharist. The album contains some religious references, and the legend of Ys is itself colored by a Catholic society. Furthermore, in tarot the suit of Cups has almost always been linked to the clergy and religion. As a result, such imagery recurs throughout the suit.
This card links to the Ten of Cups, which shows the city submerged.
