The Green Man (West Wing, Room Corridor)

The Green Man  (West Wing, Room Corridor)
The origins of the phenomenon are lost in the mists of time. It is any kind of carving, drawing, painting or representation of any king which shows a head or face surrounded by, or made from, leaves. Some Christian authorities have suggested that the foliage issuing from mouths of Green Man represents the life - giving breath of the Holy Spirit although none have gone so far as to suggest that the face is that of a God. It is also a doorkeeper or guardian, similar to Janus.
