Green Woman (well, I think it's a woman!)


Green Woman (well, I think it's a woman!)

This is my most recent purchase. I decided the end of the shed didn't have a lot going for it so I've decided to tart it up a bit!

I have recently heard of the green man if you look closely it looks like a young man tis nice I like it. It is about rebirth as the story goes, I m sure it was lady Raglan who gave it the name the green man they are not sure where it stems from there are faces of the green man at Bolton Abbey Yorkshire they were found also on other religious places too.

Hello Morgana, I'm not sure if it's male or female to be honest. Like you say, maybe a very young man! I think it looks like the face pushing out from the shed. I'm pleased with it.

Fantastic pic. Doesn't the green man come from Norse mythology, or from the Druid culture? Whatever, he is lovely. :-)

I love this decoration - what's it made of? It looks metallic, but I'm not sure. Very unusual, I really love it.

Hello Jan65, I'm pleased you like it. It's cast iron with a bronze finish.

Oh it's lovely, the more I look at it the more I like it! Cast iron with a bronze finish? How unusual. I love anything that's a bit different.
