fidelma massey . . . treasures

every once in a wee while my eye catches a glimpse
of treasures that make me catch my breath
dancing eve by fidelma massey
and i did gasp when i saw the wonderful sculptures
by irish artist fidelma massey
creatures from her imagination
and yet they have a familiar feel to them
steeped in mythology & otherworldliness
they speak of times long past
or of wonders hidden just beyond our world
her site is so very worth a visit
many more treasure to behold

  13. Hi Ruthie! Oh these are gorgeous. They looks as if they could have been invented by that much missed genius, Jim Henson's. I watched The Dark Crystal the other day (for the gazillionth time!) and it's still as amazing over 20 years later... Gelflings, Mystics, Skeksis and other magical creatures.
