A piece of magical Ash wood from Pat Noone’s fairy farm…….. given to us earlier in the year…… We have created a special “The Green Man” from some of this Ash…. may the fairies travel with it 🙂

The Green Man has always been around us, he stared down at us, the face with the foliage pouring from the mouth in Churches & Cathedrals for centuries. The 1st recorded references to The Green Man go back to the second century, but his origins are lost way back in time. The Green Man is believed to symbolize the cycle of life, death & rebirth. The symbol of Godhood within the male & 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 & the renewal of lush vegetation. The Green Man is also known as “The Jack in the Green” & is connected with the “Green Knight” of Arthurian Fable & “Robin Hood”. Unfortunately much of the significance of The Green Man is no longer widely known, but he was a very important being to our ancestors. If you walk within a forest of ancient woodland & get the feeling you’re not alone, the chances are he is with you. He’s been with mankind from the start & now is around us more than ever helping us to make contact with our natural environment & stop destroying our ever fragile world. Perhaps the importance of ancient treescapes in our history accounts for their depiction in the places of worship. He is indeed a figure to be honored.
