Oracle Predictions by John William Waterhouse

The Oracle – according to the ideas of the ancients, one of the means of communication of the deity with man. The oracles themselves were called as prophesies themselves, and the place where they were given. The prophets were given and interpreted by the priests. This picture shows a semicircle of women waiting for predictions from Tiresias, and a priestess, with horror interpreting his words.
