Our second Victorian green man at Mere is also in the south aisle, but high up at the very ill-lit east end. It is the second boss in from the chapel, above the word 'aeternum' in the frieze. This is a foliate head, as careful study through binoculars revealed, and our improved photograph shows his bright, impish expression. He also falls into the distinctive category of carving known as 'tongue-stickers' - a rude, sexual gesture.
