Watercolor: Green Man at Lincoln Cathedral - 12" x 9"



Carved in an oak table at Lincoln Cathedral, Lincolnshire, England, is the face of a "green man." Wikipedia says that the Green Man is primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, represented in the cycle of growth each spring. It is most commonly depicted as a sculpture or other representation of a face surrounded by, or made from, leaves. Though mine source was a wood carving, I decided to depict it in green. 190718. Watercolor, 12" x 9".
