Tree Dryads, Spirit Art Dolls
TREE DRYADS, SPIRIT ART DOLLS
I have been so busy I have not been able to catch up with my blog. I know that this is supposed to be a diary of what we do, so please forgive me if you come back and see the same old thing. I list most of my new dolls in eBay, others in ArtbyUs so the safets thing is to go to my site The Art Spirit Gallery where you can find all these links, or simply email me, I am always happy to answer any questions.
I am leaving you with my latest creations, I hope you enjoy my work and take one home, these little dolls make great companions.
These are my interpretation of Tree Spirits, In Greek mythology, the dryads were spirits in nature (female nymphs), who preside over the groves and forests.
Acording to the legend a dryad is born with a certain tree over which she watches. The lives of the dryads are connected with that of the trees; should the tree perish, then she dies with it.
Some believe that Dryads place gifts on a special branch alongside the pathways for individuals who love trees. Dryads clone themselves into these pieces of wood with the intention to help the human partner while at the same time to acquire the means to see the world without being rooted to the ground and to learn more about human evolution.
I love to think of my little Tree People as my contribution to those who love Mother Nature.
