Greenman Poster

The Green Man is a symbol pre-Christian in his origins, but later adopted by Gothic carvers and placed in thousands of churches and cathedrals throughout Europe, from Ireland, Scotland to Russia. Poster with history and multiple depictions of the Green Man.

Printed on 8 1/2 x 11 inch Parchment-like Paper.

From the dawn of agriculture comes the ancient Green God, the Vegetation Spirit who dies in the Fall and returns in the Spring. Found in many cultures around the world, the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities springing up in different cultures throughout the ages. Primarily it is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, or renaissance, representing the cycle of growth each spring. Some speculate that the mythology of the Green Man developed independently in the traditions of separate ancient cultures and evolved into the wide variety of examples found throughout history.

Parallels have been drawn between the Green Man and various deities. Many see the Green Man as being connected to many heathen gods such as Osiris, Odin and even the Christian Jesus, as well as later folkloric and literary characters such as the Green Knight, John Barleycorn, the Holly King and Tammuz of the Mesopotamians who is thought by some to symbolize the triumph of Green Life over Winter and Death.
