male fairies

The images in the accompanying MobileMe blog are clickable. If someone knows how to make the mages in a google blog clickable, please let me know. The explanations require one to know the answer, or so it seems to me. If there is a non-google blog that is as easy to work as google and has clickable images, I'd like to know that too.

This image began me on my quest for male fairies.

This is the most beautiful single piece of work Rembrandt ever did.

If ever I am called to go to heaven, I want this angel to take me.

I guess this is a guy. Hard to tell; and what does it matter.


I'm sure this is a guy.

Just a point of historic reference. Faeries are traditionally shown as having insect wings to distinguish them from angels, which are generally portrayed with bird/feathered wings. Of course, both are either spiritual beings or mythical beings depending on your perspective, and the wings are metaphoric, the difference has been convenient because the traditions of origin are so different, as are the philosophic underpinnings of the Celtic faeries and the Judeo-Christian angels. Angels are servants of the God of Sinai and the faeries are fairly independent, mischievous, sexy, powerful spirits of nature who work with the Celtic deities but are not by any stretch subservient to them. On an even more particular note, a "fairy" is generally in the Victorian tradition of non-sexual females and children, while modern practitioners of Celtic philosophy and spirituality generally use the spelling "faerie" to denote the kick-ass, sexy, gender inclusive spirits out of the Celtic lore.
