Green Man, Chester 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 C.1380 carvings found upon the misericords and supports from within the choir stalls of Chester Cathedral. This carving is of the legendary pagan image of the Green Man. This 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 that captures all the fine detail that is found in the original. Designed to be wall mounted this artefact makes a beautiful and attractive focal point in the home. Comes with a hanging hook and 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) 14cm x (W) 14cm.
This is great opportunity to purchase a true piece of England’s Rich Cultural History.
