German Bleigiessen: Glimpse Into Your New Year Future


Bleigiessen is an ancient form of fortune telling using molten metal to predict the future.

A small chunk of lead or tin is melted over a spoon and once liquid quickly dumped into a bowl of cold water. The shapes are then interpreted into fortunes for the coming year.
