Adam and Eve being cast out from the Garden of Eden from a copy of the Falnama ascribed to Ja'far al-Sadiq, Safavid dynasty, 16th century. Falnama is a book of omens used by fortune tellers in Iran and Turkey during the 16th and 17th centuries. Individuals seeking insight into the future would engage in a series of purification rituals, turn to a random page in the Falnama, and interpret the text and drawings for good or bad.
