This ancient mythical person dates back to pagan origins and represents the continual flow of the life cycle. Shown virtually always with foliage around the face and quite often originating from the mouth this classic interpretation of the Green Man is one of the most well known and documented. It is a beautifully carved and intricate piece with stunning detail. This reproduction makes a most interesting and talked about focal point, taken directly from the original and captures all the fine detail by the master craftsmen that carved this work of art many years ago. Comes with wall fixing and a product label.
