The Green Man

I’ve always been fascinated by the Green Man. In our lives today, there aren’t many tangible representations of deities and those we do have or that are found are summarily dismissed as the musings of an infirm mind. Yet, the Green Man is found in many places, whether naturally made or man made. Is he a sign of fertility or a symbol of a forgotten time when Nature was central to our lives? I have no definitive answer. I just enjoy seeing his image carved into churches, hung in gardens and oh when you can find him in the forest; it doesn’t get better than that.
