Greenman


I've been slowly developing a design for a linocut of a Greenman for a couple of months. A Greenman is a mythological image/character that can be found in many churches and Cathedrals. There are many theories about the origin and meaning of of the image, with connections to Paganism but also into Christianity. There is lots of information online about them. I have tried to bring in more of the ecology of the (Oak) trees, plants and flowers (Lesser Stitchwort, White Bryony) and some of the animals ( beetles, Bumblebees, Wrens and mice) they support. More prints at www.truefitt-baker.co.uk I'll put a couple of them in my Etsy shop.
