A foliate head or mask - a figure of a man's face made of, or surrounded by, leafy branches or vines sometimes bearing flowers or fruit, representing deities of various cultures around the world symbolizing a spirit of nature, growth, rebirth, spring, resurrection.

This figure is commonly used as a decorative architectural ornament on churches and other buildings.  It is also a popular reference in the names and signage of English public houses.  Thought to be a pre-Christian pagan symbol, the Green Man has been adapted by the church as evidenced by its appearance on church buildings dating from the 11th Century through to the 20th Century.
