Green man #2 (Winchester Cathedral).
Taken from the Medieval C.1300 carvings found upon the Misericords and supports within the choir stalls of Winchester Cathedral. These carvings are of significant importance as they are virtually the oldest surviving Misericord carvings in England and therefore give a true insight and glance of the cultural values and life of early 14th Century England. This carving is catalogued as Green Man #2 in our product range and only surpassed in popularity by the smaller Green Man #1 from Lincoln, however this has more interest, as this is most likely to be the oldest surviving depiction of the Green Man found in England. The carving is one of the most stunning and beautiful depictions of this pagan image that can be found within Englands heritage and history. The portrait shows the classic image of a mans face totally surrounded by leave foliage, this depiction is dominated by foliage but still gives the man character and expression. This reproduction is taken from the original carving and has captured all the fine detail that was applied by the master craftsmen that created this great work of wood sculpture. Designed to be wall mounted this reproduction artefact makes a most interesting and inspiring focal point when on display, comes with a hanging fixture and product label.
