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.
Faylinn Collection contains hundreds of faeries from Celtic myth and legend
including the three famous faeries from Sleeping Beauty, the Blue Fairy from
Pinocchio, the fairy 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 fairylands underground, in the sky, and in
original Celts emerged around 900 BC, although their ancestors (many various
clans) date back to 3000 BC (some accounts even say 6000 BC). They moved north and west into Europe above the
Alps and inhabited the areas known today as Germany, France, and the British
Isles. One of their first kingdoms (Galatia) was located in the land now called
Turkey. Over the years, the Celtic region spanned most of middle Europe and
included Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Britain, Germany, the Isle of Man, Cornwall,
France, Gaul, Spain, and Italy. So,
if your ancestors hail from any of these places, you have Celtic roots. Welcome
to the Celtic clan.
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).
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.
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 fairy'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.
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.
