  It was once an old tradition to capture a faerie and bring it home to your loved one, expressing just how much you care for the person given the magical being. It is said that those who possessed the faeries didn't understand their nature, and their needs, and the cruel owners of the creatures often ended up dead or missing once their "pets" managed to escape their bindings and cages. There were a few, however, who cherished the Fae. They cared for the creatures like family of their own, and in return the beings granted them many gifts. The deaf were able to hear once more, the blind were granted sight, the ill became healthy once again, and the lot of them were rumored to be immortal. Unfortunately, because of these miracles, the Faerie were hunted to near extinction, and frustrated humans often executed the little folk when they refused to grant them the gifts they sought. 

So if you ever encounter one of these magical beings, mind your manners, remember to curtsey or bow, and never, ever try to capture or chase them. You never know, you just may make a new friend.


This little Fae was sculpted by hand, without the use of molds, and hand painted in acrylics.
