Green man talisman appropriately carved amongst the beautiful ancient trees of Hampstead Heath. Its is more golden and reddish than green, the natural colour of the avocado stone. Thus suggesting the colours of autumn rather than vibrant greens often associated with Green man who is often seen as a symbol of spring and renewal.
The autumnal colouring can give a further association that is also made with the green man with Santa Claus or Father Christmas. A lap shaman who flies with his reindeer, a reminder of the shamanic fushion in our own culture.
It can be seen that The Green Man is the life force the exuberance of nature from which we are from and will return. Like the generosity of Santa who is the living and giving of life.
