Historical Background[edit]

In many mythologies around Europe, the Green Man is a spirit embodying vegetation. The Green Man is often depicted as a face surrounded by leaves, sometimes having vines emerging from the nose and mouth. It is sometimes considered a face peering out of a dense cluster of foliage or a face made out of a dense cluster of foliage. The Green Man is depicted as having leaves in place of hair, and if bearded, it is a beard of leaves. Depictions of the Green Man were very common around England, primarily on churches dating from the 11th century AD onward, though saw a resurgence in popular depictions in the 19th century. There are almost no depictions of a Green Woman. The Green Man is considered to be a symbol of the rebirth of nature in Spring. It has become popular in neo-Paganism as a male equivalent of the earth goddess Gaia. In architecture, these depictions are not called Green Man, but foliate heads or foliate masks. There are 3 variants in this category: the foliate head (the head is surrounded by leaves), the disgorging head (the head has vegetation coming out of its mouth), the bloodsucker head (the head has vines and vegetation emerging from the eyes, nose, mouth, and ears). The figure was unnamed until 1939, when the term "Green Man" first appeared in The Folklore Journal, in the article "The Green Man in Church Architecture" by Lady Raglan.
