These tree spirits and green men are hand carved by Richard using woodland thinnings. There is a long held tradition of tree spirits and green men across Europe and many of our churches are adorned with these mythical figures. Legends of woodland spirits are ingrained into our folklore with characters such as Jack in The Green, John Barleycorn and even Robin Hood. These quirky and humorous carvings by Richard keep alive some of these longheld traditions and each figure seems to have a character of its own, whether whimsical, humorous or even grumpy.
