Advent 5: Green Men (1)

This is a foliate face, or Green Man, from Norwich Cathedral where it is one of a thousand elaborate and colourful roof bosses which depict biblical stories, people and beasts. This will be one of a number of Green Men which I shall post for advent; the forthcoming pictures will show how the Green Man made his way out of the church and into the City of Leicester. Needless to say there are many more examples to be found on Flickr, while more information on Green Men and the Norwich bosses can be found here:
