Borin writes: "I have long thought of making a version of a Green
Man, so here's a twist: a Green Woman with shades of the Hindu goddess
Kali, perhaps. The Green Man is probably of pagan origins, but images
appear in churches and cathedrals, a face emerging from foliage, often
having tendrils and leaves flowing from mouth, ears and nostrils. These
latter characteristics are often omitted from modern depictions."
