Greenman of Geneva | Mystical

This is a portrait study of the Geneva Greenman, showing him in the deep woods. The Greenmen are the philosophers and teachers of the nature realms. Tall and fine-featured, they keep order in nature. They are distinguishable by their facial armor: Platelets of tree trunk, leaves, and energy that flow back from their face when they come in peace, come forward to protect themselves when danger approaches, and grow flaccid in old age.

They ae kind and good friends, should you be fortunate enough to meet one.
