German archaeologists have uncovered the beautifully preserved horse’s head from a Roman equestrian statue. The life-size statue is gold-plated bronze, and they also found the foot of the rider, thought to be Augustus. “This bronze sculpture counts among the best pieces to have ever been found from the area of the former Roman empire,” said Eva Kuehne-Hoermann, Hesse’s minister for science, at the unveiling of the head in Frankfurt. “Nowhere else is there a finding of this form or quality.”

Magpie Fairy - Discarded as rubbish, or accidentally lost, she finds them irresistible and adorns herself with them. Obviously because she is very tiny, the objects are depicted larger than life. I had great fun deciding which objects may have been discarded by humans and would be small enough and interesting enough for a fairy to collect. Not a traditional fairy but rather a streetwise', happy-go-lucky, modern fairy.
