Perfect for the practitioner who travels or who has a need for a portable altar space, this 12 inch Altar Table has been carved with the likeness of the Greenman. The Greenman, appearing throughout medieval architecture, is commonly revered as an icon representing the male half of divinity and nature, and is sometimes worshiped as a potent figure of rebirth, the Hunt, and the powerful ability of nature to grow and prosper. This is perhaps due to the fact that he appears most often as a man bedecked with foliage sprouting from his face as though it were a thick, full beard and covering his head as though it were a shaggy mane of hair.
Here, his image has been carved into the top of the altar table, bordered by a pattern of concentric circles. The whole image is brought to life by a rich, forest-green coat of stain that grows lighter where the wood has been carved away to create the Greenman's image. The result is a sturdy piece with four solid legs and a flat table surface.
The whole table measures approximately 12" wide by 12" deep and 7 1/2" tall.
