Fortune teller's crystal ball
This lovely glass ball, seated in a lovely delicately carved hand, is both decorative and mystic.
Divination is probably as old as mankind itself; it is known that the ancien celtic druids used bowls filled with water to stare into in order to foretell the future.
Glass balls became popular in the early middle ages.
By staring into a crystal ball one becomes mesmerized and in a meditative state which, if you are a chosen one, helps to foresee the future.
Diameter crystal ball: 8 cm
Hand: 20 x 10 cm
