Temperance is the 14th card of a Tarot deck. Essentially the "meaning" of the card is all about achieving a balance and a harmony. The elusive nature of achieving balance between elements is emphasized by creating the artwork on several layers allowing the interplay between the solid and transparent elements as they harmonize to achieve the finished image.
