If we discard the Walt Disney notions of fairies either looking like Barbie dolls with wings or like Angela Lansbury in a smock, what do they look like? How tall are they? If they are small, would they really look quite so human as some portray them? I quite like the notion of one of the Wizard of Oz follow on films where they are like nasty little insects that need to be killed with spray. I am reading through some translations of various early Celtic fairy tales, however they are missing out details such as appearance as they must have assumed that all their readers knew what fairies looked like. This knowledge seems to have been lost. This is for a doodle which takes a starting point that they do actually exist, and that a proposed building project will endanger their ancestral home. This story is based upon true events.
