"Birth of the fireflies", painted wooden box. When Archangel Gabriel locked all devils into Hell, a naughty little devil managed to escape and mix in with the legions of angels. He painted his face white and his cheeks rosy, so he'd be taken as an angel. But saint Peter caught the trick and threw the devil by its tail straight to earth. His fall was so fast, that when he hit ground, he smashed into little glowy pieces, that are now called "fireflies" #naiveart #folkart #folklore #legend #myth #storytelling #illustration #fireflies #woodpainting #woodenbox #jewelrybox #handcrafted #devils #angels #saintpeter #europeanfolklore #balkanfolklore #eastereuropean #folktales #fairytales
