The Huntress sits watchful in the bare trees. She has been hard at work collecting milk and honey for the Changeling. A tiny fire has been built to warm the offerings. Later, when the moon comes out, so will her sharp arrows and a feast will be had tonight.

Sentinels are, like the Amazons, a tribe of warrior females who protect the raths or "forts," the ancient fortifications in fields encircled by ditches. The Sentinels are always watching for human interference. They are most keen to keep Man away from the sacred fairy dens, so beware.
The Fernald's Neck Fairy
Found in fairy rates on the paths of Fernald's Neck in Maine, this fairy lives on the height of the land, overlooking the lake. Adorned in dried grass and lichen, and Old Man's Beard with a fungi appliqué.
All of these can be purchased on our Etsy page.
