Wood Elf and the Nature Spirit with a Heart
A quietly somber nature being lives in this fallen tree, offering protection to small animals and plants. His left eye is a heart. Above him, in the roots of the tree, rests a contented wood elf.
In the middle of the fallen tree – its skeleton now the home for a variety of species – rests a somber but compassionate protective spirit. One eye is a well-defined heart.
Below him, on the downside of the hill, is the only bare spot around. Just perfect for a small forest animal to burrow in during winter storms. This is a protective spirit, offering love to the small animals – and plants – of the area.
To the right is a closeup of the wood elf who rests in the root system of the tree.
This happy fallen tree lives at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, St. Charles, IL.
