The Green Man Goes Red

My old friend the Green Man is the primary human ancestor in the forests of central Europe. We are family.

 

The Green Man, Schönefeld, Saxony

I found his cousin in Prague, not the Green Man but the Red Man:

The Red Man of Prague

 

Note that his leaves cup his face rather than rise from it, and how he is so much more a fruit or a blossom than the ancestral human, the tree. Fascinating! (Before photography, this was photography, Before evolution, this was evolution.)
