Where can you find Green Men grotesques in Washington, D.C.? They aren’t on a church. The building is apropos though. Can you guess where?
Once I get started on something sometimes I can not stop. I had a long weekend, so I decided to drive down to D.C. to see some things I have wanted to see for a while. One thing I searched for were some more Green Men. I found two Green Men and one Green Lady on the U.S. Botanical Gardens building in Washington D.C.
The one above has plants around his face as most if not all green men have. However, it has a plant mustache and beard. It also appears to have horns, unless someone has a better idea about what plant that may represent. His expression is more jovial.
The one above is more serious. Could that be cat-tails coming out of his head?
I think this is the first Green Lady I have seen in person. She has a human face that is surrounded by plants. It is more like she is wearing plants about her face and head. It appears she is wearing a crown on her head.
Can you find a Green Man or Green Lady near you? One may exist and you may not even be aware.
