Green Man!

The Green Man at the Ren festival.
The Green Man image goes back in time pretty
far. There has been allot of speculation as to
his true meaning. He is often related to
as the spirit in nature or a representative of
spring and bringing new growth in the world.
He ask been associated with myth and as Sir Gowain
and the Green Knight. He has even been a symbol
of Robin Hood himself. The early church adopted
his image in sculpture and carvings on many cathedrals
and buildings. He has survived even to this day in
modern structures as well.
