Beliefs in faeries as otherworldly creatures has been around for centuries. They have appeared in paintings and in literature, mainly as the winged creatures of children’s stories we have all enjoyed. In Gaelic folklore however, they are very powerful beings.
The four elements of earth, air, water and fire are thought by some to be where faeries originate. By this belief, they are not only creatures meant to help… they are essential to the balance of these elements. This type of faeries have made appearances in literature… such as the Lady of the Lake giving King Arthur the Sword of Excalibur, and the many renderings of winged sylphs that we have become familiar with. These creatures live in harmony with these elements.
This Drone Art Fusion was inspired by the Faerie legends of old. Photo was shot with DJI’s Mavic Pro. Image was digitally transformed and fused with a variety of animated overlays.
