Description

Green Spirit woman wall Plaque in Bronzed finish, by the renowned British artist, David Lawrence. In this stunningly beautiful and unusual piece, David Lawrence has created a stunning image of the goddess of the Natural world.

The ‘Green Man’, the Pagan embodiment of a growing life force, is an ancient icon occurring throughout history, in cultures from Ancient Greece to the present day. He was seen as the irresistible force of nature - weakened and blocked by winter and yet born again in Springtime. See our magnificent range of small and large Green Man wall plaques, which represent a wonderful range of gifts for all occasions.

The ‘Greenman’ can be seen as a motif for the Spirit found in the cult of tree worship from Neolithic times onwards - he was the ‘Spirit of the Greenwood’.

The Green man, as he is most commonly seen today - as a stone or wood carved image within a church, dates from the flourishing of the elaborate Gothic style of architecture in the late 12th. Century - before these beautifully images of invention and imagination were carved in stone the common man’s images were made of wood and most have not survived.

This was the vernacular spirit - part of the world of the heathen (‘he who worships on the heath’) and the pagan (‘the common man’) although its precise doctrines have not survived: the general populace being illiterate and all their beliefs passed down orally they were eventually lost beneath the written law of the church, which was somewhat biased against the cult of the Greenman.

The church was once a much earthier place, however - with an agrarian congregation more rooted in the seasons than today . A preoccupation with images of growth and fertility were tolerated if not encouraged as a way of reaching out to a superstitious and rural populace. The course and development of religions from their origins in primitive earth and fertility magic to the customs and traditions of the present day are thoroughly documented in Sir James Frazier’s ‘Golden Bough’.

Resin plaque, 5.0ins. x 5.0ins. (12.6 cm x 12.6 cm)

Hark! The Greenspirit

She comes

And now is with thee:

Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,

Whether the summer clothe the general earth

With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing

Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch

Of mossy apple tree….

This HIGH QUALITY piece is manufactured BY HAND, in GREAT BRITAIN, using high quality resin-bonded Bronze Just like normal bronze castings, the piece is WEATHER PROOF and FROST PROOF, making it ideal for display either indoors or outside. Over time it will take on the same beautiful patina as real bronze figures. Modern moulding techniques and the skilled manufacturing process faithfully reproduce the intricate and painstaking work of the sculptor whilst giving the exact look and feel of real Cast Bronze!
