A Little Celebration of the Green Man by Karen Cater
A new, refreshing and delightful book about the Green Man. A must for your 'Green Man Library'. Abundant illustrations. A perfect gift.
'The mysterious Green Man is found in churches and cathedrals all over England, but who is this enigmatic character?
Is he merely a Christian decoration or is he an ancient symbol of fertility? What is his connection to the land and its rebirth every spring?
Karen Cater examines these questions and more in this charming little book, full of folklore, mythology, songs and her bold characteristic art.
Come with her on
a journey to find the ever evolving Green Man; the guardian of the landscape,
the gardener of the wild, protector and destroyer, with his eternal promise of
balance and renewal.'
