Nature Spirits

Green Men and Green Women

Pagan spirits of nature, of the primordial forest, anthropomorphisms of the life force within nature. Green men & foliate heads are an ancient traditional motif found throughout Britain, often in unexpected setting such as churches. Historically much more rarely depicted, Green Women are feminine nature spirits of lush fertile vegetation.

In ancient Greek myth the Dryads were female spirits of Oak Trees.
