A ‘Green Man’ is a representation of a face, surrounded by leaves. Green Men are usually in the form of a sculpture, such as this one and are most commonly used as an architectural ornament or decoration and can be found on both secular and religious buildings. There are many variations of the Green Man and many cultures from different time periods and locations around the world have used them, often for representing or relating to nature-based deities.

Primarily, the Green Man is interpreted as a symbol for ‘rebirth’, representing the cycle of growth from each spring season.
