green man

or green beast...carving on choir stalls, Christ Church cathedral, Oxford

 

The green man is a mythological archetype representing the spiritual intelligence of nature.

 

"He reminds us that we are not the lords of creation, but partners in the vast, living ecosystem that is our planet."
