Faery Legends

Faylinn means fairyland in the Celtic world, which is the origin of most all faery legends. The Nordic tribes (which is the basis for the Lord of the Rings trilogy) believed in wizards, dragons, elves, and dwarves. Celtic mythology includes all that plus fairies, mermaids, selkies, leprechauns, giants, banshees, fuaths, pixies, brownies, sprites, and more.

The Faylinn Collection contains hundreds of faeries from Celtic myth and legend including the three famous faeries from Sleeping Beauty, the Blue Faery from Pinocchio, the faery Godmother from Cinderella, and all the other popular, legendary faeries from our youth plus so many more. All these faeries are based on Celtic myth, legends, and  history, in addition to the lesser known Tuatha de Danann faeries, who ruled Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and Britain from 1897 BC to 1700 BC, then retreated to their mystical faerylands underground, in the sky, and in the sea.

All of the Faery Legends portraits in the Faylinn Collection come in three sizes: 5x7, 8x10, and 11x14. These pictures are a multimedia combination of photographs, illustrations, paintings, and digital art. Each finished piece is a collage of 15 to 100+ photographs with faces and faery wings hand painted into the collage, then merged together to create an amazingly REAL LIFE portrait of an actual person who lived during the Celtic reign (from about 3000 BC to 900 AD).  

These portraits ARE NOT laser or ink jet printed pictures on photograph paper, but REAL photographs using the full, 4-color, photographic process and developed on beautiful satin Fuji paper. Each portrait takes about 50 to 100+ hours to complete and is over 100 megabytes in size.   

Portraits are available with black or white mats (all acid free) or unmatted on acid free poster board, both displayed in a clear poly bag. In addition, each portrait comes with a beautiful illustrated card that tells the individual faery’s story; that is, his/her name, history, home, lifestyle, clan, etc. And, because these portraits are actual photographs and not just prints, they will last through many lifetimes.


So, welcome to Faylinn!
Thanks so much; your host, jules d'An
If you have a passion for wizards, warriors, dragons, elves (elf), faeries (fairies, faes, fays, faery, faerie), dwarves (dwarfs), mermaids, and/or any of the other mystical Celtic creatures such as unicorns, Pegasus, Pan, or fawns, this is the best place to find them. jules d'An
