Fairies are frequently found in folklore, myths, legends and popular culture. Usually portrayed as small in stature and human-like in form, they were thought to be magical or supernatural entities with mysterious powers.

In modern times fairies are depicted as tiny creatures with wings, in day gone by however their sizes varied and it was thought that they were able to magically shrink or expand at will. In folklore they were rarely if ever described with wings and were thought to fly by magical means, occasionally they would appear perched on the back of a bird.
