Une sculpture très originale.
Chris: It is a green man, a pagan symbol Martine, there are many thousands of examples in UK churches
With a positive outlook! Nice find and capture, Chris!
Chris: As Ray says, it observes and does not judge

This is a fabulous one.. what a great find.
Chris: The more you look the more you see Astrid
I understand the look of horror in his eyes but the smile on the outside. I like this green man tremendously with the well worn wood.
Chris: Thank you kindly Mary

We don't create things like this, these days
Chris: And I therefore ask the question, which you can answer - why don't we?
This is a veryw ell carved one, these things seem to pop upin the most unusual of places don't they.
Chris: Yes they do Brian
An interesting green man - in oak, I'd guess smile
Chris: Almost certainly in oak Tom
