|Symbol for the Horned God|
GREEN MAN -- He is the spirit of the forest. He is symbolized by a human face through foliage. He is known by many names like Jack-in-the-Green or Green Jack.
In, modern day, he's usually part of the spring rites like Beltane or May Day along with the May Queen.
He is the archetypal representation masculine energy in nature. One theory is that he was a fertility god before becoming the newer Green Man.
The Green Man has been traced back to ancient Rome, but there are cultures with little Roman influence that have a similar figure, including Nepal, Iraq, India, and Istanbul. In Rome, He may have connections to Dionysus before his image morphed into the hedonistic party animal. He was a god of agriculture and fertility of nature.
He is found in many churches in Britain in the architecture. These early churches most likely had pre-Christian believers carving the stonework. So the pagan tradition survived as the church took over.
