The Green Man

Sculpture : The Green Man by Lydia Kapinsky, 1999.
University of London, Gordon Square gardens,

“My roots go down to the depths of the world, through earth dry brick,
and damp earth, through veins of lead and silver. I am all fibre”

“I am as green as a yew tree in the shade of the hedge. My hair is made
of leaves. I am rooted to the middle of the earth. My body is a stalk.
I press the stalk”.

“the roots make a skeleton on the ground, with dead leaves heaped in the angles”.

Extracts from The Waves, by Virginia Woolf, 1931
