The Green Man is a symbol of spring and rebirth from the pagan religion.  The green men in this pencil drawing are not traditionally represented.  A Green Man is often depicted as a face intertwined with leaves.  My figures are headless and instead are inextricably linked with the branches and trunks  of trees, making them slightly more "Ent"-like than a traditional green man.  Tree's grow on and in these figures, they are at one with the forest, the human form cannot be separated from the trees themselves.  This is commenting on my concept and belief that all nature is linked and no part of it is any more important than any other.  The mushrooms in the picture are crucial to this, because it has been recently discovered that mushrooms link tree's together in a forest, so that the trees can send each other nutrients and support each other as a community.

Everything within nature is linked and inseparable and each tiny part has an important role to play. Humanity needs to learn to be more like the forest, by supporting the landscape around us that we interact with on a daily basis.  We need to view nature as necessary to our wellbeing and part of our community which is crucial to our survival.
