Artist's Description


in “A Class of Its Own Art Gallery” – 01-27-13

- If a girl stares in a mirror in a dark room lit only by a candle, she might catch a glimpse of her future husband staring back at her in the mirror. (There are many variations to this trick.)
- If a girl wets her scarf in the water into which the melted New Year tin was cast and places it under her pillow for the night, she will see her future spouse in a dream. (The same goes for boys and handkerchiefs.) A coin can be placed under the pillow instead of the wetted scarf/handkerchief.
- Going into the pigsty, a girl asks a pig whether she will be married during the following year. If the pig will grunt, the answer is yes, if it remains silent, the answer is no :-)

Original is a painting by by Karl Briullov (1799 – 1852). From Wikipedia ,Common Domain.
