GUEST,Sam Pirt Any info about the green man? (168* d) RE: Any info about the green man? 10 Aug 08


Excellent I knew you would come up with some answers.

If I am right in thinking then the 'green man' has existed for many years but only became known as the 'green man' upon Lady Raglan giving it this title.
What did this face represent before this time? was it the spirit of the forest?
What was the significance of the carving on the churches?

Nerd - the whiffers you refer to are these related to the wickerman or was that born out of a film and taken on to become a festival due to its cult popularity?

Does anybody know any sort verses about the green man? and what role it had?

Thanks a lot, it seems to have opened up more questions rather than answered them but thankyou all.

Cheers, Sam
