This Week's Art

Green Man - Bamburg Cathedral, Germany
One of the events in our programme for the Jornadas Culturales was a talk on Britain and Ireland through the seasons. The poster advertising it was of A Green Man. Carvings of Green Men are frequently found on churches and other secular buildings in the British Isles and around the world. He is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth or "renaissance", and represents the cycle of growth each spring.
