Not a Versace photoshoot, this is 102 years ago - on Saturday 3rd March 1918. The Great War rages & photographer Paul Castlenau travelled to what became Jordan to take this autochrome of Fayz Bey el Azm (companion of Emir Fayรงal) which I've Babelised for you. It is not colourised

One of the most common weaknesses of the Fair Folk is iron, a metal which burns them to the core. The reasons for this vary, but one suggestion is that since fairies represent pre-Iron Age cultures, iron is their bane because technology won the day.

A Breton tale says the man in the moon was once a real man foolish enough to join a song with the fairies; pounced upon for his effrontery & hurled thru the clouds, landing on the moon, where he must stay until replaced by another victim!

'By the Stream, Autumn' by Paul Gauguin, 1885 Impressionism style. Equinox represents the period of struggle between darkness and light, death and life. This beautiful pastoral painting is a triumph of light.

๐Ÿ‚CELEBRATING In Slavic folklore BABA YAGA was represented as a maternal effigy fashioned from straw during the fall harvest. In agrarian folklore she's both a guardian of crops & also as an ogress who could withhold humanity's bounty from the earth.
