A photograph of the beautiful marble statue entitled, ‘The Elf,’ by Welsh sculptor William Goscombe John (1860 – 1952). This stunning work of art is on public display at The Botanic Gardens in Glasgow, Scotland, UK, Europe. Cardiff-born John took his inspiration for this ethereal piece from the Celtic folklore of his homeland. The sculpture went on show at the Glasgow International Exhibition of 1901. With a nod to its magical properties, I have sprinkled the crouching elf’s skin with digital glitterdust.
