Greenmen

Greenmen and greenwomen are depictions of faces emerging from leaves and branches.  Symbols of rebirth and renewal, they are often found carved on churches.  They are also a popular name for bars and pubs, perhaps for those same renewing qualities.  

At Design Toscano we have many different green man designs.   Some are classic depictions of ancient gods like Odin and Bacchus:

Others are mystical depictions of tree spirits:

 The Spirit of Nottingham Woods: Greenman Tree Sculpture
 

The Poison Ivy Forest Witch: Greenman Wall Sculpture

 



















And they are not all outdoor decor, some greenmen are carved into furniture and are cast as jewelry:
