The Green Man is an ancient Avatar, an incarnate divine teacher, whose image appears often in medieval sculpture and still appears in modern dreams and works of art.
If Green Man strikes a spiritual chord in you, you might like the book GREEN MAN - The Archetype of our Oneness with the Earth by William Anderson, Photography by Clive Hicks. The photograph of Green Man in Bamberg Cathedral is from Clive Hicks. The book is photograph and illustration rich.
I admire the garden sculpture from Mosaiculture International - Montreal 2013. I find this Green Man enchanting.
Lemurs, like the ring-tailed ones shown here, are native to Madagascar. The island country submitted this sculpture, titled All in a Row. © Guy Boily
