Clay Greenman - Made to Order.

The origins and meaning of the Greenman is shrouded in mystery. He most often appears carved in wood and stone in churches, abbeys and cathedrals throughout the UK and France. It's believed he may be a nature spirit and or a symbol of fertility and protection.

My version is created with protection being the intention, and watcher of the seasons changing from summer to autumn.

Please do note that this is a made to order listing, and allow up to a week for your Greenman to be created. The photos are examples only, each Greenman will be unique because I hand create each one and do not use a mould.

The Greenman is made from airdried clay I have reinforced with mesh wire backing, and includes a jute string hoop to hang him up. He is hand painted and once thoroughly dry varnished.

This Greenman is intended for indoors only.
