Rider-Waite symbolism

* The coins in the front are ordered according to the structure of the kabbalistic Tree of Life.

* A man in the background seems to be guarding the old man - it is discernible he is holding a spear. As such he may be considered "at work".

* A woman, possibly the mother of the child, is talking to the man.
