The Green Man:

and his many faces

An appealing and sometimes eerie figure, the green man has a face made of leaves and vines with either human or animal features. Depicted in stone work from medieval times, his effigy is found on many cathedrals and churches throughout Europe. He also appears in Arabic, Indian and Asian architecture. The earliest figure dates from the third century BCE and
is a combination of both human and animal features.

Believed to represent an ancient diety, he is the guardian of the forest and all living things. He is a reminder that we all are part of the cycle of life and the forces of nature.

Within the modern Neopagen religious movement he symbolizes the embodiment of untamed nature and life energy. In the Christian tradition he represents the concept of rebirth and the resurrection.

Original Sculpture.

Siu/saidhs' interest in the metaphysical and in the history and philosophy of the Celts has inspired her into creating many designs that are not commercially available to the general public. Hence, this rendition of the Sheela-na-gig. The Sheela is an ancient image of an overtly sexual, grotesque, sometimes comical human form. The images are usually associated with older women. There is facial and torso scarring on some of the originals and with most, the ribs show. Sheela's are often associated with female saints. They are usually found on Norman origin churches plus castles, and secular buildings. The image is most prominent in Ireland but also found in England, Spain and France. Many believe the images are Celtic and may depict some form of the Goddess. Those that appear on churches and other host buildings are very old and have been placed there from other sources, possibly a previous building or temple.


Sheela-na-gigs molded from original by Siu'saidh Miller and finished in 3 stone finishes.
8 inches x 6 1/2 inches
$35.00 each
