"The force that through the green fuse drives the flower drives my green age."
It is felt by some that the Green Man is a representation of the ancient Celtic god of nature and all living things. He is most often shown as a male head either formed out of leaves (hence the term ‘foliate head’) or disgorging vegetation from his mouth and often also his ears and eyes.
The Green Man symbolizes irrepressible life, renewal and rebirth, the eternal cycle of life, death and regeneration. The combination of human head with leaves and vegetation, moreover, can be seen as a symbol of the union of mankind with nature. Our Jovial Green Man Pendant is shown with oak leaves surrounding his face. Nestled in the back of the pendant is a bare tree beneath a full moon.
Cast in 100% lead-free pewter, the
Jovial Green Man Pendant
is a strong statement of a person’s connection with nature.
