The Green Man Pendant
by Oberon Zell, Mythic Images©
The Green Man archetype is the primal nature of all men and women who yearn to live in harmony with Nature and the Earth, and to learn how to regenerate and grow.
He represents our connection to the deep ancient wisdom of the Earth. The essence of the Green Man is the cycle of death and rebirth -- continual renewal of all in the living universe.
The Green Man has many faces, and has been known as Osiris, Dionysus, Dumuzi, etc. to our ancestors. He is the pollinator, male seed, the garden and forest god, consistently benevolent. He is often shown with leaves and vines sprouting from his mouth, as his language is the living vegetation itself. Variations of his foliate face have appeared all over the world. Even now, images such as these appear on churches and cathedrals throughout Europe.
