          Of all the Wizards of the Planet Saturn, “ORACULUS” is the most wise.  Known as “ The Man of Many Eyes”, he has a “Third Eye”, in the middle of his forehead, with which he can foresee the Future.  He also has “Eyes in the Back of his Head”, enabling him to “look back” upon the past, with a clarity that only “hindsight” can allow.  Gazing into his Crystal Sphere, ORACULUS is able to witness events, taking place, not only “in the here and now”, but also in distant Galaxies, far, far away.  Nothing escapes his penetrating gaze.  The Secrets of the Universe hide beneath his cape.  Raising his Golden Scepter to the stars, ORACULOUS plays the Music of the Spheres, upon Saturn’s Majestic Rings, propelling Great Tidal Waves of Wizardry, across the gulf of Outer Space
          Oraculus is easy.  In terms of sculpting all he needs is a few Extra Eyes carved in his head, a Cape, and for his hand, a standard issue Crystal Sphere.  The Magic and the Transformation is all in the decoration, especially of the interior of his cape.  It might need to be sculpted more open than I show it here, to allow more access for emulating stars.  And the interior color should be as black as space, with a spray of magic iridescent blue, along the bottom, fading into darkness at the top.  The exterior of his cape will be a different color, to be determined later.

His face will be the standard Saturn orange, but with the “beard” area painted white, to signify great  wizardry and wisdom!  "Ahem!"  In the best of all possible worlds his scepter should be plated gold.  And in his hand the Crystal Sphere, might be molded with flecks of silver imbedded in it, to catch the light, like tiny stars.  On the other hand, if the stars, in fact, turn out to be great squares of glitter, it might look corny, and also be expensive, so, being practical, maybe just transparent clear will do, or better still, clear with a veneer of opalescence.
