This is a pictorial representation of the I Ching, the book of changes, reputed to be the oldest book in the world.
You can ask this picture questions! Use a coin to traverse the I Ching decision tree starting from the center and finishing on the outer edge of the circle at one of the 64 hexagrams. In the lower part of the picture is a list of the oracles responses once the coins have been tossed 6 times and the hexagram generated. Each hexagram has a succinct one sentence response which has been gleaned from 4 of the most profound, classic and magical versions of the I Ching available today.
