The Leshi -Part 5/7

This is the fifth of a 7-piece series of illustrations that I completed for The Woodland Faerie Trail of Achill Island in Ireland.  They are printed on wooden plaques and scattered throughout fairy houses and lovely, mossy, ivy-ed trees.

The Leshi is a spirit guardian of the forest.  He is a solitary, wily creature.  He is distrustful of and dangerous to humans because of our destructive natures, and will lead hikers and campers astray in the deep woods.  He is half-sized and nearly impossible to see while immobile. 

Stay tuned for more Irish fairies!
