ARTS 1 Barstow Community College Practice of Divination Discussion

Description

Mirrors were thought of and used as objects of self-admiration and also as objects of divination and seeing into the unknown. (“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?). The Etruscans did much of their artwork on the backs of mirrors, also implements for telling the future. (Mirror with Kalchas the Seer reading the signs in the liver of a sacrificial animal. 400 BC) On the back of this mirror is a winged, bearded man identified as Khalchas, a Greek Seer. He is looking at the liver of a sacrificed animal, searching for omens and portents, for a sign into future events.”The Etruscans put special trust in the livers of sacrificial animals, on which they thought the gods had inscribed the hoped-for message. In fact, they viewed the liver as a sort of microcosm, divided into sections that corresponded to the 16 regions of the sky. Mirrors too, were valued for their ability to reveal the future?”What rituals, signs, bodily expressions, superstitions do you employ and believe in in your own life?
