Green Man – Worcester Cathedral. Grey Stone Finish.
This is one of our unique and exclusive designs from our collection of hand crafted reproduction carvings which are taken directly from an original medieval Cathedral carving. We pride ourselves at Oakapple Designs as having permission to take moulds directly from the medieval carvings found upon the misericords and choir stalls from within the Cathedrals and Churches in the UK. Our moulds and production techniques capture and reproduce all the fine detail from the original carvings to produce a very high-quality piece with all the authenticity from the original carving.
Taken from the medieval carvings (C1380.) found upon the Misericords and supporters from within the choir stalls of Worcester Cathedral. This magnificent carving of the Green Man is one of a pair of very similar designed motifs that adorn these Misericords. The Green Man is seen here in a classic form of his face being surrounded by lush foliage that originates in coming from both his nose and eye’s. The Green Man is an ancient symbol dating back to at least Pagan times and represents the eternal cycle of life, from birth to death and then to be carried on through rebirth in the next generation. This has very close links with Mother Nature and the natural world and the connections and similarities with all life upon this planet. Life being mortal for us all but the cycle of life is forever. This reproduction has been taken from the original carving and captures all the fine detail produced by the master craftsmen that carved this piece over 600 years ago. Designed to hang upon a wall, this reproduction makes a stunning display and interesting focal point, comes with a hanging fixture and a product label.
Produced here in a grey stone finish made from a special blended composite of resin and stone powders with white flecking.
Size (H) 16cm x (W) 15cm
