Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Collection of my works inspired by celtic folklore
Green Man / Forest King. Soft pastels on paper, 21*10 cm, 2015
The Green Man represents the lushness of flourishing vegetation and the coming of spring and summer and is a symbol of rebirth and the co-dependence between nature and man. Figures such as Sylvanus, Derg Corra, Green George, Jack in the green, John Barleycorn, Robin Goodfellow, Puck, and the Green Knight all share aspects of the Green Man's nature.
Fantasy art, pagan gods, pastel painting.
