Venusleute

by Jan Pohunek
Venusleute (people of Venus) were in German tales little people living in rocks near Zulova (Sumperk county, Czech republic). They were very small, but pretty, and used to help and give food to lost children. They also bathed, cooked and washed their clothes in rock "bowls" often found in local rocks. Venusleute also sometimes used a cap of invisibility.
