Jack in the Green
All across the land on Beltane, the first day of spring
“Jack in the Green” makes an appearance to ensure
the fertility of the land for the coming season.
Here is my Jack in the Green Sculpture dedicated
to this appearance of Jack.
Jack is hand made by Kathleen Minton using her special Marble Mixture.
This means that he is frost proof and suitable for outdoor use.
Size: 22cms diameter.
Complete with Wall hanging Hook
As you can see “Jack in the Green” is celebrated
in parts of Britain on Beltane or May 1st!
(This is the Hastings “Jack in the Green”)
Who is “JACK IN THE GREEN?”
The video above is “Jack in the Green” by Dragonsfly.
Its an musical explanation of Jack!
“The sun is half up and betokens the hour
When the children arrive with their garlands of flowers
So now let the music and the dancing begin
And toast the good heart of young Jack in the Green”
– Martin Graebe
Music by Dragonsfly “Jack in the Green” from the CD “The Ridgeway”
