FROM AN IDEA TO A FINISHED STONE CARVING

greenman

The initial Idea

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.

The Refined Drawing

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

Financial Aid

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.
