This simple cut-out pendant is inspired by the the Long Man of Wilmington, an intriguing 'hill figure' in England.

Originally known as the Green Man, the Long Man was at first a just a tamping down of earth – not much more than a shadow on sunny days or a concentration of light snow in the winter. Situated on a hillside, its design was intentionally elongated to appear in proportion when seen from below.

Exactly when it was done is mostly a mystery; written records suggest the 16th or 17th century although some argue that it may in fact be very ancient. Unfortunately it was insensitively 'restored' in the late 1800s using painted concrete blocks, and it's also been vandalized.

It's considered by some to be a sacred place, inspiring various pieces of music and used as the setting for some literary stories.
