Harayadori. By Julie Kwiatkowski Schuler.

In 1803, Japanese villagers discovered a strange vessel at Harayadori,
described as looking like a pot for cooking rice, the top had a glass
panel, and the bottom was banded with the finest iron. Inside was a
beautiful woman. She could not communicate with them. She was guarding a
box. There was cake in her ship. Some people thought she was fleeing
her home country with the head of her beloved in the box. No one can say
for sure. No one was allowed to look in the box. In the end, she got
back into her vessel and the villagers pushed her back out to sea.

The Devonshire Vicar and the Big Black Hen. By Julie Kwiatkowski Schuler.

Original painting inspired by a Devonshire legend of a vicar well versed
in the black arts. A servant came upon a manuscript left on his desk
and began to read. The sky grew dark and wind shook the house. The doors
flew open and a black hen came into the room. The hen grew to enormous
size right before the servant’s eyes. The vicar returned just in time
with a bag of rice and he reversed the spell.
