In the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot a man sits under a tree with his arms folded defiantly, defensively, or in peaceful contemplation looking at 3 cups on the ground in front of him while a bodiless hand holds up the 4th cup. The 3 cups is not enough, he dreams of having more than he has already represented by the hand outstretched from the cloud holding the 4th cup.
