Ten is the highest number in each suit, so these cards speak of abundance. Maltese enjoy finger food snacks of savoury pastries (pastizzi) and an out-of-shape glutton is gobbling as many as possible (10; →10). The digital artwork (35x19cm) points out that nationwide there is an increasing social and health problem with overconsumption and obesity, which already affects 35% of Maltese children in the 7-11 age group.
