Green Man #3 – Chester Cathedral


2 in stock



Taken from the Medieval  (C.1380) carvings found upon the misericords and supports from within the choir stalls of Chester Cathedral. This carving is of the legendary pagan image of the Green Man. This is an ancient symbol dating back to at least Pagan times and represents the eternal cycle of life, from birth to death and then to be carried on through rebirth in the next generation. This has very close links with Mother Nature and the natural world and the connections and similarities with all life upon this planet. Life being mortal for us all but the cycle of life is forever. Comes with wall fixing and a product label.

Size (H) 14cm x (W) 14cm.

These replicas are made by making a mould from the original carvings and then make a cast from resin. These are extremely close to the original and show all the cracks and wood grain. All the replicas are hand painted and finished
