Long Description:
Georgia Browns (formerly the Famous Lion pub) is a largish pub that has been converted from an old furniture shop, Lions Furnishings.

The three storey building has several decorative panels. The sculpture can be seen above the third storey in the central panel. It depicts a Green Man face surrounded by foliate decoration.

Green man panel could possibly be made of Plaster. It is painted white and measures 60cm high x 250cm wide x 15cm deep approx.

'A Green Man is a sculpture, drawing, or other representation of a face surrounded by or made from leaves. Branches or vines may sprout from the nose, mouth, nostrils or other parts of the face and these shoots may bear flowers or fruit. Commonly used as a decorative architectural ornament, Green Men are frequently found on carvings in churches and other buildings.
The simplest depict a man's face peering out of dense foliage. Some may have leaves for hair, perhaps with a leafy beard. Often leaves or leafy shoots are shown growing from his open mouth and sometimes even from the nose and eyes as well. In the most abstract examples, the carving at first glance appears to be merely stylised foliage, with the facial element only becoming apparent on closer examination.

Primarily the Green Man is interpreted as a symbol of rebirth, or "renaissance," representing the cycle of growth each spring.'
