*****Who is the Green Man?
The Green Man is found in many forms throughout history. He is to be found in many different guises, but the common feature is the face covered by foliage, very often sprouting from their mouths. He is often found carved in wood or stone in medieval churches and cathedrals. Some people suspect that he was a bridge between the new beliefs of Christianity and the Pagan beliefs it replaced.
The term “Green Man” is sometimes called the “Jack in the Green” and there has been a revival of these appearances around the date of Beltane or May Day every spring, marking re-birth and the start of the cycle of growth. The Green Man means different things to different people in this day and age. To many he represents a figure who is an Environmental guardian -- “the keeper of the forests and woods”.
