The Greenman is a curious mythological symbol which appears throughout Europe, particularly in the British Isles. Consisting of a face made entirely of leave or of a face surounded by leaves and 'disgorging' (or gushing out) leaves of foliage from his mouth he is believed to be the embodiment of the eternal Life Force, of Life Restored and of development coming when again from death. The Greenman is discovered most frequently throughout churches and cathedrals - high up on the capitals atop columns, in the roofing managers between the vaulting, on the misericords of choir stalls. If you were to look, it would not take you long to find him. So popular a figure was he in our culture that eventually he left from his ecclesiastical origins - search for him among wrought iron gates and the architecture of Victorian Theatre and City center: he is often there to be discovered. But the fact that he is so often discovered in churches is a curious thing. What is a pagan image performing in a Christian church - is it simply to entertain the illiterate peasant throughout the Latin mass? Or might it be that the Greenman is the really embodiment of Rebirth: of the Resurrection, Hope and Life - an icon which the commoner would have well comprehended long back. It is a curious reality that he is a figure who still resonates so well with us today.
