MYTHICAL MONDAY 35 - LEPRECHAUN

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leprechaun

 

“…usually depicted as a little old man, wearing a coat and hat, who partakes in mischief. They are solitary creatures who spend their time making and mending shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured by a human, the leprechaun has the magical power to grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom… Modern depictions of leprechauns are largely based on derogatory 19th century caricatures and stereotypes of the Irish.”
