Origins of The Cibolo’s mascot, Green Man

AT THE TRAIL

If you have attended Cibolo events over the past 35 years, you may have found yourself lucky enough to meet our foliage-covered mascot named Green Man.

Those of you who did not have that pleasure may be familiar with him from Roman architecture, Medieval architecture, garden décor, or other art forms. This floating visage of a man framed with leaves can range from smiling to screaming and has existed in various cultures and traditions for thousands of years.

Despite his longstanding presence, the origin of Green Man is disputed among scholars. This is largely due to the lack of written record of the motif over the time that his image was being widely spread.
