Dear Ones,

What do you think? Is this a dryad (a tree spirit) … or is it the deva of an oak tree? Or maybe a young deva is what is called a dryad or ‘tree spirit’ in esoteric lore …

Tiny Anthologies: Gnome Homes . photos by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

Here are some photos of mine that I fancifully call ‘gnome homes’. The first two are standard ‘root gnome’ homes. Then there are three photos of ‘fern gnome homes’. Then there are two photos of ‘city gnome homes’.

Gnomes like dark places; that is clear. From their ability to improvise new homes in the cities of Earth, I can tell these types of nature spirits are highly intelligent and adaptible, despite their earthly bearings …

The Gnomes and Trolls of John Bauer . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 12 May 2022
Location: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California

  • ARE THESE GNOMES?
  • THE HICCUP: IS THIS A TROLL?
  • CONCLUSION

Dear Ones,

Here are some of the nature spirits painted by John Bauer. I like his illustrations very much!  There is a hiccup which I will discuss below. At any rate, here are what seem to me to be quite good representations of gnomes and a changeling …

ARE THESE GNOMES?

THE HICCUP: IS THIS A TROLL?

From the size and bearing of the nature spirits shown above, it seems to me the John Bauer painted there what I call ‘gnomes’. Yet the painter calls them ‘trolls’.

I do see what I call ‘trolls’ in other paintings produced by John Bauer. These look rather like the nature spirits shown below, but are much larger … which are a good deal taller than a young man would be. Here is one such illustration of what I might call a ‘troll’ …

CONCLUSION

From this I gather it may be that there is a relationship between gnomes and trolls, much in the way there is a relationship between the Lesser Dwarves and the Greater Dwarves.

Santa Susana Pass 2 . photos by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged on 20 February 2022 and published on `12 May 2022
Location: Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park, Chatsworth, California

Dear Ones,

Here is the second of three sets of photos from Santa Susana Pass. This set includes some markups that make clear what seem to my imagination to be nature spirit portraits in the trunks of oak trees …
