Winter Mirror

Will this Eagle face seven years of bad luck if it breaks the mirror?



Illusion of an Eagle looking at its own reflection on ice surface

It is said that when you break a mirror, your cosmic penance is to
endure seven years of bad luck, unless you can find a way to
counteract the negative effects.

The origin of the "break a mirror, face seven years of bad luck"
superstition can be traced back to the Romans, who were the first
to create glass mirrors. The Romans, along with the Greek, Chinese,
African and Indian cultures, believed that a mirror had the power to
confiscate part of the user's soul. If the user's reflected image became
distorted in any way, this could mean a corruption of his or her soul.
