Greenman's Grove HK Secrets:
(Production Box)
The Green Man, a face surrounded by leaves, is an ancient symbol. In different ages and different countries he has represented nature gods, ancestral faces, the Lord of Greenwood, a forest demon, or wild man. Here the Green Man is shown as a protective spirit of the forest, gathering all the birds, animals, and even fairies beneath his sheltering boughs. On the inside of the box figurine is an acorn cap. Acorns symbolize life, rebirth and immortality.

Up for bidding we have a special Greenman's Grove by Mel Heald. This small Treasure Jest is a one of a kind prototype. When you compare the production version from your collection with these pictures, you will see why this piece is so very special.

All of the animals are beautifully painted in a reddish brown stain. The frog near the base and the bird on the Greenman's head are distinctively painted green. Even the fairies' wings, rocks, mushrooms, and branches are stained in a much darker coloring than the original production version. The face takes on an even more fatherly/protector type look with the use of this technique.

In addition to the beautiful coloring there are other differences. The production piece has an acorn cap inside the box, while this is empty. There are no hallmarks on this piece. The base is marked NOT COLOR SAMPLE.

All in all this piece is much closer in its coloring to the picture of the Greenman's Grove from the Harmony Kingdom Website. If you love the Greenman, this is a must have for your collection. With your winning bid you support the efforts of NAMI, in their quest to help those persons living with serious mental illness.
