Two of our favourite garden ornaments are our terracotta 'Brighton Heads'.
Picture attached from a few years ago.
Does anyone know how they got their name?
Those heads remind me of the Green Man and the Green Woman - carved into ancient pagan temples. Lots of myths surrounding them. Maybe they are called Brighton Heads because that is where they were made?
I know what you mean about the Green Man/Woman connection.
I tried 'Googling' them but might have to improve my 'search term' technique as I kept getting referred to sites about the Brighton and Hove Albion Football managers!!
Ha ha ha. Maybe they are images of a former Brighton manager and his wife. They look very nice with the fuchsias in them - fetching hairdos.
