This instantly recognisable  Green man can be found in Bamberg Cathedral in Germany. My thanks to Pierre Ménard  for sending in these wonderful pictures.
The Bamberg Cathedral Green Man dates from around 1237. This green man forms one of the two corbels supporting a shelf on which the famous Rider of Bamberg stands. Strangely the other corbel was never carved.  The face is formed from stylised acanthus leaves and at first glance can almost be missed amongst the foliage.


This sighting is in our gazetteer which can be viewed HERE

And has been added to our Flickr photographic archive which can be viewed HERE
