The Green Man is a legendary pagan deity
roaming the woodlands of the British Isles and Europe.
Usually depicted as a horned man peering out of a mask of the foliage of the
sacred oak, he is a God of nature and fertility. Also known as "Green Jack,
"Jack-in-the-Green" and "Green George," he represents tree
spirits, plants and foliage.
Green Man has rain making powers to feed livestock from lush meadows. Frequently
depicted in medieval art, including church decor, Green George, as he is usually
called in spring Pagan rites, is represented by a young man dressed head to foot
in greenery. He leads the festival procession.
Some festival rituals include Green Man, or an effigy of him, dunked in a river
or pond to ensure that there will be enough rain to nurture growth in meadows
and pastures. Some believe Green Man shares an affinity with the forest-dwelling
fairies since green is the fairy color. In some British locales including the
British Isles, the fairy people are called "Greenies" and "Greencoaties."
In the myth of "The Fairy Children," two fairy children, a brother and
a sister, have green skin and claim to be part of a green-skinned race.
