Zinc Alloy “Green Man” Architectural Panels

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


These monumental architectural relief panels are made from a zinc alloy. The central figure represents the “Green Man”, an ancient myth celebrating the mystery rebirth of flora and nature. Salvaged from a late 19th-century building in the mid-west, today these friezes would be the perfect bar back or wall decoration for your restaurant or dining room, circa 1890s.
