Fairy of the Glen with Butterfly Wings Statue
Fairy of the Glen Statue hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with high quality designer resin. Alighting from a dream, a gentle fairy settles her wide butterfly wings, created of 50 individually hand-cutpiece of shimmering, copper-foiled art glass, to cast a soft glow in your home. The “Fairy Glen” is a unique and unusual landscape, a geological wonder on the Isle of Skye. It is situated between the villages of Sheader and Balnacnoc. On the West side of Trotternish at Balnacnoc above Uig, is the Fairy Glen, a Quirang-like landslip in miniature. The road winds around small round-topped grassy hills with lochans (ponds) in between which gives the glen an otherworldly feel. Skye has a long history involving the Fairys, most of which is related to Dunvegan Castle and their “Fairy Flag“. The Fairy Glen (much like the Fairy Pools in Glenbrittle) has no real legends or stories involving fairys that can be traced. For simple fact that the location is unusual so it has been given the nickname Fairy Glen. One of the hills still has its basalt topping intact which, from a distance, looks like a ruin and has been called Castle Ewan. In the low cliff behind Castle Ewan there is a very small cave where it has been said pressing coins into cracks in the rock will bring Good Luck. Fairy of the Glen with Butterfly Wings Statue sizes: 6.5 inches / 16.5 cm x 10.5 inches / 26.5 cm x 14.5 inches / 37 cm.
