~...Deep in the Enchanted Forest at the base of the great Mountains of YurL, there lays a cave hidden to all. All, except for a very special group of beings. Us mere mortals know them as...Elves and Faeries.
This place is called Yurl of Light for this place is the sacred of sacred amongst them. If any human being were to stumble upon this cave, they would see nothing but darkness because humans cannot see magic. But, unseen to our human eyes, within the cave is the most beautiful glowing pond that feeds a stream that runs deep into the great Mountain. The waters within this pond hold special magical and healing powers. Its from these waters that Faeries replenish their glow as they frolic in the luminescence and where the Elves fill their magical potion bottles capturing the very essence of the magic for them to heal, weave their magic and to make wishes come true.
So if you ever wondered why Faeries glow and where Elves get their special powers.....now you know...for this is "The Elven Secret"

Everything else by me. This piece is probably the hardest piece I have made. Its taken me 8 days to make. Building the cave and the water feature took most of the time but in the end, time well spent because I learnt new things and as always, determined to create the vision I had in my minds eye by pushing my boundaries to make it happen. I had a lot of fun making this one.
I hope you all like "The Elven Secret"
