On Saint Basil's Day, various symbolic objects (knife, rock, coal, mirror, comb, ring, coin, flower) are hidden under bowls on a large table. The girls gather around it and each one picks a bowl, discovering the object underneath. The objects predicts whether the future husband will be handsome (ring), rich (coin), vain (mirror), dark- skinned (coal), with a temper (knife), toothy (comb). The girls who get the rock of the flower will remain unmarried, like a burden for their parents or withering while waiting to be wed.
This illustration is part of the book "Ce Vrăji mai Fac Fetele / Love and fate for Girls who Can't Wait", that illustrates old and forgotten love rituals from rural Romania.
Love is magic and mysterious, it doesn’t always reveal itself at once and we often find ourselves coming its way longing, searching, dreaming, bewitching. Long time ago, the Romanian people believed that fate ordains us a one true love and destiny can be none other than that already written for us. Passionate and eager, girls have always tried to find out more about what the future holds, through innocent and intimate rituals, small gestures for the enchanted nights in which lies the knowledge of what love may bring.
