  • Though no-one knows for sure the real meaning of the Green Man, everyone who sets eyes on him understands that he stands for something very profound –indeed, archetypal- in our culture. He represents the fertility and fecundity of the harvest, perhaps –but also the process of death and rebirth, corruption and resurrection. Whatever his elusive significance, humankind's abiding fascination with the inscrutable Green Man has endowed our churches and temples with an astonishing array of carvings, stone heads, stained glass and paintings, by turns beautiful and sinister. Mike Harding’s travels around Britain, and as far afield as Nepal and Borneo, have yielded this bestselling little book on the Green Man, from medieval to Victorian, both a magnificent photographic record and a definitive work in miniature on the strangest of mythical men.
