Caption

Common methods used for fortune telling in Europe and the Americas include astromancy, horary astrology, pendulum reading, spirit board reading, tasseography (reading tea leaves in a cup), cartomancy (fortune telling with cards), tarot reading, crystallomancy (reading of a crystal sphere), and chiromancy (reading of the palms). The last three have traditional associations in the popular mind with the Roma and Sinti people (gypsies). Another form of fortune-telling, sometimes called reading or spiritual consultation, does not rely on specific devices or methods, but rather the practitioner gives the client advice and predictions which are said to have come from spirits or in visions. Israhel van Meckenem (1445, November 10, 1503) was a German printmaker and goldsmith. He was the most prolific engraver of the 15th century and an important figure in the early history of old master prints. This image has been colour enhanced.
