The Green Man is found inside churches around the world, but can often be found while taking nature and woods walks in your city. Traditionally the image depicts a male face surrounded by vines and leaves, but it can also be found peering out of the trunks of trees along the trail.
The archetype and symbology of the green man represents re-birth and the coming of spring and summer. It is thought to also symbolize the co-relationship between nature and mankind.
While mindfully taking nature photos; the green man may cross your path. This face appeared up at Mt Tabor in Portland, OR.
