The Green Man Handcast Stone Sculpture by George Carruth is a delightful representation of an ancient Celtic archetype whose origins are lost in the mists of time. A human face of foliage, he represents the unity between man and vegetation. Some call the Green Man the male counterpart to Gaia, the Mother of the Earth. His carved image is found in religious architecture all over Europe, historically representing renewal and rebirth, and the mischievous, irrepressible spirit of nature. Let his playful presence delight your garden guests! Weather-durable sculpture is designed for year-round outdoor display. Made in USA.
George Carruth, renowned Ohio sculptor, creates images that fascinate or challenge him. His delightful carvings are sought out by collectors, and sent as gifts for weddings, holidays, bereavement, birthdays or any event that needs a little character and whimsy. Although many of these sculptures are displayed indoors, they are designed to give many years of pleasure when displayed outdoors in the garden. George's designs have appeared on the covers of over a dozen garden and gift catalogs. Commissions include designs for the National Cathedral in Washington DC, a custom stone ornament for the White House Christmas tree, corporate gifts for Home and Garden Television and a public television documentary titled "George Carruth: American Sculptor."

What a delightful face to hang in the garden! So expressive and beautifully detailed, you know it was made by a master craftsman. I love the whole folklore of "The Green Man"--so this was a perfect purchase for me. I will be buying more as gifts, you can be sure!
