Thistlebeard Green Man Wall Plaque
Thistlebeard has a bent woody nose and bushy eyebrows with a tangled beard of wild growing branches just perfect for the growth of red mushrooms and hiding places for curious beetles. He has a battered blue pointed hat with branches and mushrooms growing and a slow moving snail ambling his way across the brim. Thistlebeard is happy and content and is very good luck to have in your home.

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.
