The greenman sculpture is an ancient form of art that probably has its roots in pre-Christian druidic belief systems. Rather like wall decor for trees, these interesting statues literally give a face to a favorite Oak, Maple, Ash, or other backyard tree. Although some look intimidating or even a bit frightening, there are greenman sculptures with happier, cheerful faces. These fun wall decor items are a perfect addition for a summer garden, and add just the right character to summer garden soirees.
Few wall decor items make a better fit for summer parties than the Bacchus, God of Wine Greenman Wall Sculpture. With wild, unkempt curls and a jovial, grape-ringed face, Bacchus shows that this is one deity who is always ready to party.
Another of the more cheerful greenman sculptures in our collection is actually a greenwoman. Daphne, the Greenwoman Wall Sculpture has a happy, easy-going face with bright eyes and smooth, flawless skin. Her face is also ringed with leaves of Laurel that blow in the breeze, and where tiny fairy creatures dwell.
These two statues are indeed cheerful but the title of "Happiest Greenman" goes to our Laughing Greenman Birdhouse. With a mischievous wink and roaring laughter, this fun greenman decor also acts as a backyard birdhouse.
