Roman Stone Bust

FROM AN IDEA TO A FINISHED CARVING

greenman
The Green Man has been familiar from the earliest times, appearing all over Europe as a partly pagan symbol which nevertheless makes an appearance in many Christian buildings and monuments.

Green Man

From these pictures you can see how an idea turns into reality. Andrew had been asked to produce a keystone for a door and there is a long tradition of using human or mythical faces for this purpose.

A "Green Man" was one possible choice and Andrew developed this idea with a few rough sketches which were transformed into the full size working drawings you can see here, which are what is usually submitted to the client for final approval

.The drawings on this page were drawn at a scale of 1:1 and they were used throughout the actual process of carving.
