Confiscated by The Man and presented to House Marm as a gift. From my light lessons in gulag gangs, the stars represent how many years he has been down (served inside). From the Arch, he’s a local boy. The many money and gambling references are that he’s a hustler-player. The bullet hole in the playing card is an attempt, perhaps, to get around the artist’s opportunity for catching a violation (no images of guns allowed to be drawn, as it glorifies and amps up the other clients — and don’t think it doesn’t.
I’m sure that there’s other meaning that I’ve missed, like the number or the items form a shape that means that. One die shows a 1 towards us, the other looks like a 1, as well. The front die shows 2 and the back 3.
Numbers usually stand for letters, like a 3 is a c and a 2 is a b but one in front of the other might mean add them or subtract–shit, could mean multiply of divide. Only the really dumb clients will tell you (cos they are sworn to secrecy by the gangs).
