This exquisite stone is has been carved from Bluestone, the same location as the stones used in the original Stonehenge structure.
His name means the Green One or Verdant One, he is the voice of creativeness to the aspirant and committed artist.
He can come as a white light or the gleam on a blade of grass, but more often as an inner mood.
The sign of his presence is the ability to work or experience with tireless enthusiasm beyond one’s normal capacities. In this there may be a link across cultures,… one reason for the enthusiasm of the medieval sculptors for the Green Man may be that he was the source of inspiration.”
He is the symbol of the eternal cycle of Nature, the mysterious figure who dies and is reborn each year.
