[sw-l] Sign for Leprechaun?

The sign for leprechaun in LIBRAS is "small person with pointy ears", but unfortunately "duende" can also be translated, dwarf, hobbit, or several other creatures, and a Vulcan is a large person with pointy ears.

Such are the beauties of mythological creatures.  Making "small person in green with pointy ears" might make leprechaun, but I'm not Irish.  I will be curious to know.
