This piece is based on a wood carved "Green Man" figure that was carved around 1420 into a misericord chair in Dunblane Cathedral, Scotland.
I have taken the medieval design and reinterpreted it as a stone carving.
The Green Man is likely to have a pagan origin, perhaps a fertility figure or a nature spirit connected with seasonal renawal and regrowth in Spring. There is also a strong Christian meaning of rebirth or ressurection and that the foliage issuing from the mouths of Green Men represents the life-giving breath of the Holy Spirit. The Green Man figure frequently appears, carved in wood or stone, in churches, chapels, abbeys and cathedrals.
This piece comes ready with a hanging hole on the rear to enable it to be hung flush to the wall from a pin-nail.
Hand painted. Resin cast reproduction of Stuart Fellowes’ original sculpture.
