Jersey Devil Flying on a Starry Night - #4 of 30 ~ SOLD

"When legends die,
there are no more dreams.
When there are no more dreams,
there is no greatness." 

Is the Jersey Devil real? Is it an alien, a mutation or a figment of the imagination?Without a doubt, the Jersey Devil is the most popular folklore legend in New Jersey. The earliest accounts of the creature go back to stories told by Native Americans prior to the White man's settlement here. The Lenape Indians called the Pine Barrens "Popuessing", meaning "place of the dragon".

  1. Never have heard of this legend! Must explore some the painting!!

  2. LOVE your Halloween countdown calendar!!! And I love myths, legends and fables - the world would definitely be a much duller place without them. Your quote reminded me of a book I liked - Neil Gaiman's "American Gods".
