Madame Rosa purveyor of futures both fortunate and foul. Cross her palm with silver to discover yours....
The art of fortune telling is in many ways the ultimate superstition, the means to avoid bad futures or to help bring on bad fortune in others.
In Martin's piece he brings to life this practice through the use of 7 seperate elements making a whole image:
Cracked mirror for bad luck.
Magpies, one for sorrow two for joy.
Lucky to have a bird poo on you.
Bad luck to step on the cracks in a pavement.
Bad luck to walk under a ladder.
Black cats are both good and bad luck and Madame Rosa the lucky gypsy...beware of her curse.
