Symbols - What does heaven look like

Dwarf

The Spirit beings and personifications of minerals and gases.  This is why they were traditionally associated with mining.  Thus more of a concept than a symbol - see Dwarf for more details.

Although minerals [unless consumed] are harmless to human beings, there was a recognition in former times that many gases were not; as such there are ‘good’ dwarfs and ‘evil’ dwarfs.  If you sniff glue you will be presented with the image of truly nasty looking dwarfs.

The synonymous names for dwarfs include Duegar.
