This Greenman lives in quiet self-confidence – and a bit of braggadocio – in the magical Hoh Rain Forest, Olympic Peninsula, Washington State.
To the right is a close up view of him in his tree home. He has a magnificent curly beard, mustache and subtle smile worthy of the best of the ancient Sumerian sculptures of the gods. (See the Assyrian Head, below)
To the left is a view of the tree branch he has as his marker, with a series of “heads” ascending above him. This view also kinda reminds me of Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat, with the series of moss-covered branches rising up into the forest canopy like a series of hats…or is that an honoring of all the ancestors who came before him?
As I have come to understand (at present), there are different tasks in the realm of the Green People. I have photographed some nature beings who have clearly and specifically identified themselves as Greenmen but are not surrounded by the classic Greenman facial armor/decoration, as depicted in Celtic-origin images (below left). They explain they are part of the realm protected by the Greenman warriors, and are doing other work related to the care and preservation of an environment.
This Greenman lives in an exquisite natural palace worthy of any of the gods! That’s his tree – far center left.
