sortes virgilanae

Watercolor, typewritten text on index card 
5” x 3”

A field of vertical strokes blends into a gentle wash while one dry, pigment-heavy stroke individuates itself on the right side of this painting. Sortes Virgilianae is an ancient form of bibliomancy in which advice is sought by consulting the works of Roman poet Virgil, including the Aeneid.

Blue Watercolors (Framed Selection)

Watercolor, typewritten text on index cards
11.625” x 36.75”

A selection of five Blue Watercolors float in a vertical, maple shadow frame. The cards read, from top to bottom, Papyromancy, “divination by the howling of dogs,” a string of overtyped characters creating a single, indecipherable typewritten line, “divination by brain shape and personality type,” and Daphnomancy.

This selection of Blue Watercolors is sold framed and mounted as is. Substitutions are not permitted.
