Kavad 4.6 - Geomancy signs on Flickr.
The 16 signs of Geomancy are a largely forgotten oracular or divinatory system that possibly hails originally from West Africa. Adapted and absorbed into western magic, it’s always had a visual component, as the 4-bit binary figures or signs became translated into pictures that could tell a story. A whole lot of side information should included in these symbols, though - parts of body, stability or mobility of the figure, relationships to astrology, and more. Bears thinking on.
