|This Green Man fountainhead lives in the courtyard of the Theosophical Society in Paris, next door|
to the famous Art Nouveau building designed by Jules Lavirotte at 29 avenue Rapp.
While we're on the subject of longing for spring, I dredged up this photo of a Green Man fountainhead from a Paris courtyard. It's rare to see Green Men in the city; they're woodland deities, associated with spring and, at least according to one source, rain. Hence his use as a fountainhead.
This is the only Green Man I've ever seen in the wild, as it were. I'm very pleased to have made his acquaintance.
