Tao of Jonathon's picture

I was not happy with the Autumn finish that I originally had on it, so I repainted it. This is my first attempt of a Green Man, which was followed by the ceramic one posted below.
This Green Man mask is constructed from a scrap steel harrowing disk. I used actual oak leaves as patterns to cut out the leaves, using scrap steel as well. 26'' H. The Green Man originated in ancient times as the male version of mother nature. It shifted and changed through the many cultures. It became a common thread in art and architecture during the middle ages.
