The Green Man is primarily interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, represented in the cycle of growth each spring. It is most commonly depicted as a sculpture or other representation of a face surrounded by, or made from, leaves. The Green Man motif has many variations.
Branches or vines may sprout from the mouth, nostrils, or other parts of the face and these shoots may bear flowers or fruit.

Often used as decorative ornaments, Green Men are frequently found in carvings on both secular and ecclesiastical buildings. "The Green Man" is also a popular name for English Pubs and various interpretations of the name appear on inn signs, which sometimes show a full figure rather than just the head.
