Troll – Norwegian Symbol from Fairy Tales

Share/Bookmark

These mystical creatures from norse mythology have inspired many writers, composers and even painters. Trolls appear quite frequently in Norwegian fairy tales, and tourists often buy them as perfect travel souvenirs. The trolls had very distinct features. They had long crooked noses, only four fingers and toes on each limb, and most of them had long bushy tails. Some trolls were giants, and others were small.

Fine Art Exhibit by Adam Parker Smith

Share/Bookmark

Adam Parker Smith’s first solo exhibition in New York City. It was inspired by the execution scene in Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls. The heads are impaled on stakes or lying on the ground which is strewn with roses. As guilt, fascination and loyalty encroach, flawless heroines confront heart ache, fools distinguish beauty from the grotesque and the wretched mourn the loss of irreproachable purity.
