If you stand in the choir facing away from the high altar, and look at the choir stalls on the north side of the choir, you will find this small foliate head on the end of the front rank of stalls, beneath the poppy-head. He is flanked by two fine dogs of the greyhound type. His foliage is very stylised, in fact he is little more than a decorative flourish, his eyes formed by the curves of the leaves, as is his mouth. It is only his human nose that makes it clear this is indeed a green man.
