Dating back from the past, long before Christianity, the Green Man is a pagan survivor who, from the 6th century, was absorbed into Christian imagery and can be found in churches and cathedrals all over Europe. With his leaf-covered face he is thought to represent the link between humankind and nature thus signifying life, renewal and rebirth. Once discovered he will guide and protect.
