Old Man River Green Man Tree Ent Wall Plaque
Old Man River is new to our Green Man family, but he is as old as time... He sits by the banks of a river with his roots reaching deeply into the earth and river rocks. He knows what happens in the world around him from the bits of gossip that float in the wind to his out- reaching branches. But nothing touches him, he is content in his riverbank home and knows he will still be here when all else has moved on. Old man River has sleepy eyes and a mossy green mustache with bits of deep amber fungi happily growing from his truck. The texture of the truck is very realistic being a ash brown colour.

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. Found in many cultures from many ages around the world, the Green Man is often related to natural vegetative deities. 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.
