Portraits of Nature Beings – Book 1 Gnomes – NEW

Portraits of nature Beings: Book 1 – Gnomes offers a unique view into the hidden world of gnomes, showcasing their self-carved portraits and stories on trees and rocks. This unconventional book provides intimate insights into the lives of individual gnomes, capturing their distinct personalities and quirks through vibrant photographs. Each of the 54 photographs tell a story, depicting the personality of specific gnomes in their moments of reflection, work or play. From their detailed beards to the intricate designs of their signature hats, the portraits provide glimpses into the rich culture of these elusive beings. Portraits of Gnomes invites readers to slow down and immerse themselves in a world where magic and reality converge, where the quiet whispers of parks and forests reveal the hidden wonders of gnome life, one carving at a time. The book is $19.95, and each copy is autographed by Atala.

More Information

This collection of fifty-four photographs shows gnomes at work and play, as children, youth, adults and elders. There are the workers, the dreamers, the jokesters, the artists, the rebels and the stars. Each set of photos has its own story, as recounted from Atala Toy’s interdimensional conversations with her portrait subjects. Atala calls this work Glitch Eco-Art. Glitch – because these descriptive photographs come about due to glitches in the veils that separate our two realms. The nature beings carve their living art into tree trunks and rocks, in their realm – and sometimes the work is visible in our human realm. Eco-Art – because these photos are a call to action. They show us that nature is alive, sentient, and reaching out to humans to cooperate in ensuring a healthy earth future for all.

This is a 48-page soft-cover book, 6×9 portrait size with a full page image on one side and a story and secondary photos on the other side. It is appropriate for teaching children about the wonders of the natural world around them, and for adults to both learn and enjoy.

Nature Beings are Similar to Human Beings

The beings of the nature realms are very much like us. They have homes, families, jobs, responsibilities, and enjoy downtime. Like human beings, each nature being has his/her own personality and each family has its own dynamics.

This is the first in my series of monographs highlighting the various species of nature beings who co-exist with human beings on earth. These photographs are of nature beings I have personally encountered and with whom I have communicated. ​

The series is my contribution to our human base of knowledge about other stewards of earth’s proper functioning. It is about the elves, gnomes, greenmen, Pans, tree beings, rock beings and others who have lived on this planet far longer than we humans. ​I hope the series is also fun to look at.

My monographs focus on earth elementals – those who work with the solid earth life forms (versus the elementals of water, air and fire). These beings are responsible for, and/or are, the trees, rocks and plants. The images they craft are both pragmatic and artistic.

These other-dimension-created images are now available for humans to physically see, thanks to the technical sophistication of digital cameras and computer post-processing. Viewing these images helps familiarize humans with what to look at. Matter-focused Western cultures seek this type of validation about a complex realm of beings who other cultures have long been aware of, and work with.

Like many nature beings, gnomes sometimes carve their images into a rock or tree. The image signifies the gnome’s home address, from which a net of responsive energy radiates out, covering their area of responsibility. This image is a living artwork, imbued with the gnome’s life force energy working in cooperation with that of the tree/rock.

Unlike classic human art, which creates a static finished piece, nature beings’ art is a dynamic, living, changing interaction with the world around them. A nature being art piece will change over time, as the situation being explored is itself changed.
