Here at Medieval Collectibles, we carry a variety of greenman-themed items. Greenman is not, however, technically, a specific individual. The term was first coined in 1939, when it was used to describe and name a depiction of any man (or woman, although green women are rare) who peers out through some form of dense foliage; greenman carvings most typically feature foliage and leaves as hair and beards, although other natural themes can supplant these: vines for hair is not an uncommon image. At first glance, the greenman has something of a pagan appearance: he looks like an antiquated nature deity or spirit. Yet somehow, greenman carvings are found in dozens upon dozens of Christian and catholic churches across the globe. But enough history; Medieval Collectibles features a wide array of greenman products; virtually all of them are carvings, which stays true to the original medium of the greenman. And our greenman carvings are done a variety of surfaces; if you want a greenman wall plaque, we have several styles to choose from. If you want a greenman trinket box, his likeness graces many of those, as well. As paradoxical as it is, we even have greenman candle holders. Here in our greenman category, a greenman graces everything: from decorative items like wall plaques to useful items like sand timers, letter openers, and pen holders. And they come in a variety of emotions too: if you want a happy greenman, a grumpy one, or even a whimsical one, we can accommodate that wish. If you like greenman or just foliate carvings in general then you should highly consider any one of our greenman items.
