An impressive early Oak carving of the "Green Man".....(The Green Man is believed to symbolise the cycle of life, death and re-birth......the symbol of Godhood within the male and its relationship with the transcendent life force our Goddess, the female expression of divinity. He is a Pagan symbol who heralds Spring after a long winter and the renewal of lush vegetation.....very appropriate..!).....this excellent example has Stag Antlers added probably in the 18th/19thc...to symbolize fertility.....
