This captivating plaque features a kindly-looking Green Man, his smiling features surrounded by beautifully-sculpted, star-shaped foliage.
Believed to represent growth and rebirth, the Green Man is a motif that appears regularly in both churches and secular buildings across Europe. Spotting carvings of the Green Man in capitals, bosses and misericords is a thoroughly enjoyable pastime (see our Books department for more!).
The sculpture is weatherproof; and he would look wonderful in his natural, outdoors habitat. There?s a hole in the back of the plaque for easy hanging.
Designed and made in England using resin-bonded Cotswold and Portland stone.
