Dating back from a past long before Christianity, the Green Man is a pagan survivor who, from the 6th century, was absorbed into Christian imagery and can be found in churches and cathedrals all over Europe. With his leaf-covered face he is thought to represent the link between humankind and nature thus signifying life, renewal and rebirth. Once discovered he will guide and protect.
The venerable alloy of pewter is made of 92% tin with copper and antimony to harden it and enhance casting. At St Justin the distinguished tradition of casting pewter lives on. High quality pewter ingots are fused in a crucible and the molten metal is poured into rubber moulds created from the original master design.
After cooling and linishing, the items are hand-polished and assembled by craftsmen.
