Product Description

GREENMAN HISTORY
Dating back from the past, long before Christianity, the Green Man (a foliate head) is a pagan survivor who, from the 6th century, was absorbed into Christian imagery and can be found in churches and cathedrals all over Europe. With his leaf-covered face he is thought to represent the link between humankind and nature thus signifying life, renewal and rebirth. Once discovered he will guide and protect.
It's hard to know where the concept of the Green Man came from and there are many theories. It's not difficult to imagine though that in the deep forests of Northern Europe there were solitary men living hidden from society that gained a mythical status.
