This is a medieval image showing a woman lifting her lover up to her in a basket. The wheel she is spinning brings to mind the Wheel of Fortune. The lady herself is in a tower, which naturally reminds me of The Tower card.

Here is a 15th century work by Daniel Hopfer of Lovers. They stand under a ripe fruit tree, while the birds in the sky and the couple in the backgound further reinforce the idea of union.

This is a Persian 17th century work attributed to the Shah Abbasi.

Finally, a lovely 15th century German painting of a couple.
