The posters in this series are based on the water color images created by artist Patricia DeLisa for the Fairy Tale Moons wall calendars that we published for the years 2008, 2009, and 2011. The Star Coins appeard in the 2009 calendar. Occasionally we take the 36 original works of art created for this project out on exhibit, to celebrate scenes from the storyteller’s night sky and to teach dark sky advocacy through once upon a time. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these posters will be donated to the International Dark Sky Association to support their work in stewarding natural darkness worldwide.
Contact Mary if you would like exhibit information.
“Then another child came and asked for a little shirt, and the pious girl thought, it’s dark, and nobody can see you. So you might as well give away your shirt. She took off the shirt and gave it away too. And, as she stood there, with nothing on whatsoever, the stars fell from the sky all at once, an they turned into hard shining coins. Though she had just given away her little shirt, she now had a new one of the finest linen. Thereupon, she gathered the coins together and was rich for the rest of her life. ~”The Star Coins” from the Brother’s Grimm
