Yes! Its made up of several vertical poles and you have to be at the right angle and distance for the face of the greenman to be apparent.

This is fascinating. I wonder if it might be by Colin Wilbourn, who was responsible for this work years ago?

Hi Mora,

Thank you for the link. Have done some more research though and found that is by Philip Townsend. More details about the sculpture can be found on the following website:
