Watson's Green Man - SMC223
is a stone carving by Colin Watson, the St Magnus Cathedral
Stone Mason. It has been carved out of a piece of scrap stone
and is an experiment.
Colin decided to carve the piece after a discussion with friends
about "Green Men". Traditionally Green Men are meant
to be the personification of nature and are only carved as
male. Colin has decided to carve both a male and a female
The foliage sprouting from the male's mouth curls around and
forms the head band for the female. The bodies, though not
carved yet, will probably intertwine and merge as one.
