I often wondered what a pooka looks like! I LOVE this rendering!
“The púca (or pooka) is a legendary creature in Celtic folklore, most notably in Ireland, the West of Scotland, and Wales. It is a fairy and the ultimate shapeshifter which can change into many different forms. They are considered bringers of good and bad fortune”
Fairy Tree, Dingle, Co Kerry. Usually a lone Hawthorn, treated with great respect. People leave gifts in the hope of good fortune, receiving healing, or for prayers to be answered. Fairy trees were often seen as doorways to another realm, and offerings were a form of appeasement. With later Christianization, trees often became dedicated to the local saint and offerings continued.
