Damnit! Where’s a bible when you need it?
it’s a version of an old wives’ tale/ fortune telling rhyme, along the same lines as “Red sky at morning, sailors take warning / red sky at night, sailors delight.” the number of magpies (or crows, depending on which is more common in the area) that you see indicates what kind of news you’re going to hear in the near future.
They’re talking about the sign the body is wrapped in: it says Exodus 22:18.
“Do not allow a sorceress to live.”
Cryptic beginnings…always delightful.
Suffer not which to live?
King James Bible – Exodus 22:18
Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
Hmmm… Depending on how the magpies are counted, it could be Mirth, a Wedding, or gold. At least according to the version of the rhyme used here.
A secret, if you count them all as separate (the Mirth panel has two birds). Fun rhyme to sing-song in religious areas though, especially when crows are more common
Well, that’s a delightfully creepy way to start the new year. Can’t wait to see what comes next.
Really like the coloring here! Good work! 🙂
Is it possible that we’ll be able to buy prints of this page?
