The Green Man - the image of the foliate head or the head of a man sprouting leaves - is perhaps the commonest motif in medieval sculpture. This work, first published in 1978, explores the significance of the image and offers insights into medieval man's understanding of nature, into conceptions of death, rebirth and resurrection in the Middle Ages, and into concerns today with ecology and man's relationship with the green world.

Review:

The rarest, most recondite and fascinating art book, which is a folklore and magic book as well... An incredibly thorough study, with every example illustrated, of the weird foliate heads or masks found in the medieval churches and cathedrals of Western Europe, with leaves sprouting from them. THE TIMES
