Fairies are mythical, magical creatures that are often depicted as small, human-like beings with wings that have close relationships with humans. They are often portrayed as kind and lovely, but can also be mischievous or spiteful. Fairy folklore dates back to the Middle Ages in Europe and can be found in the folklore of multiple European cultures (including Celtic, Slavic, Germanic, and French folklore). Legends and tales of fairies do not have a single origin, but are rather a collection of folk beliefs from disparate sources. Various folk theories about the origins of fairies include casting them as either demoted angels or demons in a Christian tradition, as deities in Pagan belief systems, as spirits of the dead, as prehistoric precursors to humans, or as spirits of nature. The label of fairy is usually applied to specific magical creatures with human appearance, magical powers, and a penchant for trickery. Inspired by the ancient stories of these mysterious creatures, Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered a vintage-styled poster of a faerie, crafted in a fashion that’s reminiscent of the golden age of poster art and vintage art. This classic mythical design is available as a poster print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, or as a notecard or postcard, including with multiple size options available for the prints, canvases, mini-canvases, and metal signs.
