More Information About the Green Man Altar Cloth
The Green Man is considered to be a symbol of growth, renewal, fertility, and new beginnings. Though carvings of his imagery often appear year-round, Green Man is most celebrated during Spring. Superficially, the Green Man would appear to be pagan, perhaps a fertility figure or a nature spirit. However, he has appeared frequently carved in wood or stone in churches, chapels, abbeys, and cathedrals, where examples can be found dating through to the 20th century. However, the earliest finding of the Green Man is from St. Abre, in St. Hilaire-le-grand, circa 400 AD.
The Seed of Life is displayed behind the Green Man. It is a symbol that has been around for centuries and has intrigued the mind of those in Ancient Egypt, Greece, Italy, and more all the way up to modern times. The Seed of Life comprises seven circles, one in the center and six others around it. They overlap each other and make a beautiful flower-like design in the center. The design is considered to be the basis for all creation and the universe itself. It shows that events don’t happen independently; rather, everything is connected together.
The natural elements of life are placed along the outer ring of the design. They are also placed in their corresponding directions; Water in the North, Air in the East, Fire in the South, and Earth in the West. It not only shows the natural elements of life but can also be helpful for altar work incorporating them.
