The Fortune-teller

By petrova
31 Favourites
This is inspired by astrology and tarot reading. It's the symbol of the Fortune-teller, the woman who reads the future in cards and palms.
What do you think? How do you interpret the image?

How I interpret:To me the dried flower symbolises death together with the feather
and the flowers on the tea cup which grow from death is the symbol of life.
In the background you have the astrology. The black and white is yin/yang.

I especially like the white string-like patterns in the background. That adds to the atmosphere in a way that really appeals to me - 'specially in reference to the title.

Incredibleness. = p

Hahahah, that explains the patterns. :D I'm impressed by how creative you are.

Wouldn't have thought of that if it was me.

Fantastiskt vackert, kompositionen ger en en känsla av mystik och hemligheter. Jag gillar att du har använt en stjärnkarta som bakgrund, mycket passande tycker jag! :D

Åh tack så mycket för den fina kommentaren. Bakgrunden är skapad med min t-shirt (favorit för tillfället), man tager vad man haver helt enkelt ;)

Det var så lite så kära du! :hug:
Det tycker jag är ett mycket bra motto, och grymt bra blev det dessutom ;)

Well, I can't interpret anything, but it will look good to be at my side during I read tarot for my friends :D

Väldigt vintrig bild. Duken är snön, stjärnorna tindrar bakom koppen - det är mörkt nog för att se dem. Det ser ut som en torkad blomma och en fjäder på tefatet. Livet har gått i dvala, men dess skönhet går att bevara med en försiktig och omtänksam hand. De är tillsammans med den varma drycken, det som hjälper oss att uthärda den långa kylan.
