Indian Handmade Wooden Parrot Astrology/Chilaka Jyothisham/Parakeet fortune-telling Showpiece| Kondapalli Toys

This unique showpiece represents Parrot astrology or Parakeet fortune-telling a type of astrology popular among the Tamils of Tamil Nadu, Telugus in Andhra Pradesh, India and Singapore. When a patron sits before the fortune teller, the latter opens the cage and lets the parrot out. He instructs the parrot to pick a card for the patron. The parrot walks over to the cards, picks one from the stack or the spread with its beak and gives it to the astrologer. It then walks back inside its cage. The astrologer opens the card and based on the image tells the fortune of the patron. With a keen eye and a skilful hand, the kondapalli artisan chips wood into a fine blank form, ready for the vibrant colours.
