Oracle Bones!

Oracle bones were used in Ancient China to ask questions to the Gods and the answers would be interpreted by the people based on what happened to the bone.  For example, a crack appearing on the bone (and where) would tell them the answer to the question!  They would use these answers to predict the future.

After researching the history behind Chinese people speaking to the Gods in this way, 4F asked their own questions and wrote them on an oracle bone using symbols.

Comment below with the question that you asked on your oracle bone.
