Diana With Bow

Dijon Foliate Head images were central to the ancient Celtic cultures of pre-Christian Europe and symbolized fertility, prophecy, inspiration and regeneration. By 400 BCE such heads were being carved in stone, showing leaf foliage sprouting from the mouth. This art form spread into the Romanesque and Gothic chapels and cathedrals, and is viewed by scholars as the resurfacing of Druidic tree worship and Dionysiac mystery themes originally suppressed by the church. Green Man is the husbandman/caretaker of nature, the male counterpart of the Great Mother Goddess venerated since neolithic times. See Aulnay, Llangwm, Suton Benger See Neptune
