The Green Man is a sculpted image appearing in Western architecture as early as the First Century AD and finding wide use in Romanesque and Gothic churches. The Green Man originates in mythology as a pagan forest archetype embodying growth, decay, and resurrection/rebirth. This book, with over 110 photographs, documents the diversity of the Green Man representations as they appear on late 19th Century buildings in New York City. An index provides the street locations of all the photographs.
