The Green Man

Here in the grip of the Mid Winter Blahs, I offer the hope of spring. The Green Man is a pagan symbol of rebirth (as well as death), of the cyclical dynamic of nature’s character. This a green man I sculpted for a water feature several years ago. The Virginia creeper was kind enough to drape itself around the cast in an artful manner.

I cast too many of these concrete features. I stored them outside. These two are the last.

The Green Man symbols seeks to remind us that there is life after death. The wheel in the sky turns, and all is as it should be.

End.
