Green Woman

One of my favorite images is that of the Green Man.

green man  This drawing, from Spirit and Flesh, typifies the idea of the Green Man.  A symbol of rebirth, sometimes called the Oak King, a favorite of mine for years.

So, as we were leaving the fair, a Green Lady appeared out of the bushes surrounding the garden displays.

PA210428  Isn’t she lovely.  The performer had was on stilts on her legs and arms.  She almost had a spider effect.  But she was completely covered in vines and leaves and grape clusters.


She did have such a peaceful countenance.  So now I have a Green Lady to go with my Green Man.
