Impish Fae - Sylph

~mixed media~


This is Sylph. According to the wikipedia, "a sylph is a faux-

mythological creature in the Western tradition. The term "Sylph"

originates in Paracelsus, who describes sylphs as invisible beings

of the air, his elementals of air. There is no substantial mythos

associated with them. As alchemy in the West derived from

Paracelsus, alchemists and related movements, such as

Rosicrucianism, continued to speak of sylphs in their hermetic


But she can also be described as "the mystically, chemically

condensed humors of peevish women." I like that definition better

and am sticking to it. yes.

Her head is hand sculpted from polymer clay, her body is a sturdy

wire armature sewn together with deerskin, buffalo skin and

artificial sinew, and her eyes are round mother of pearl beads. She

has sewn leather and wire wings and she was finished up with a nice

sealer and acrylics.

She is 7 inches tall and her wingspread is ~10 inches.

Sylph comes with a signed tag and is the newest member at Blackbird Marmalade


She's up on ebay now. ^_^

Thanks for looking!
