The Green Man!

You’ve read about him in both Watersmeet and The Centaur’s Daughter. Here is an IMAGE:

I just LOVE this guy! And now that you know what to look for, you’ll see him everywhere. He is the spirit of things green and growing and was an important deity in pre-ChristianBritish Isles (and elsewhere). One source I read said that there are more images of the Green Man in older churches and chapels in England than there are of the Virgin Mother or Christ!

Enjoy the photo!
