1"d x 13.5"w x 15"h

This vivid Gothic style depiction of the 'Green Man' was a wall or ceiling panel. The Green Man motif has many variations. Found in many cultures from many ages around the world, the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities. It is primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, 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.  England.

Overall very good condition, the gesso showing craquelure throughout the surface as expected in a piece this age. .
