This Green Man charm is cast in solid 14K gold. It is intricately detailed and was extremely challenging and time consuming to carve. Two 1.25mm Tsavorites are set in the Green Man's eyes. Tsavorites are a clearer and brighter green than most emeralds and add considerable sparkle to the pendant. The piece is 3/4" high and 3/4" across and there are two bails on the backside through which the chain slides.
The Green Man is a symbol of rebirth and a symbol of seasonal renewal. Although the Green Man may appear to be a pagan image, it has been a decorative motif in churches, abbeys and cathedrals around the world and throughout the centuries. The earliest Green Man carvings are in St. Abre, St. Hilaire-le-grand, France. 400 A.D. The Green Man has made a resurgence in modern times, with artists such as myself interweaving the imagery into various medias and interpretations.
