The Symbolism in the "Five of Pentacles" Tarot Card:

Two poor, injured, and decrepit figures wander underneath an opulent stained glass window in a snowstorm. They are dejected and downtrodden by their condition. The stained glass window could refer to a church, but is most likely an opulent home. The cripple has a slightly disfigured face, suggesting leprosy or a similar condition. Both have minimal or no foot coverings and are trying to walk through deep snow. They will surely perish if they do not get aid.
