Green Man Festival 2014

Yay to a dry and bright Green Man Festival 2014 in the Brecon Beacons in Wales! Pirate Technics again built the centre-piece Green Man Sculpture.

This year he wore a tribal mask, giving him a more spiritual appearance. He held in his hand an oroborus - a snake eating his own tail and the symbol of infinity.

At night he was illuminated dramatically, giving him a haunting look from across the field.

Constructed using locally sourced materials and foraged greenery people could walk through him and tie butterfly-shaped wishes inside.

He was again burnt on the Sunday with a great firework display from Two Tigers Fireworks as the last act of the festival. His mask stood out dramatically as he brought to a close one of the best UK festivals.

Here is a video of the whole finale show.

And here's a time-lapse of the build.
