The Jack-in-the-Green was (and indeed is) a traditional participant in May celebrations and May Day parades mainly in the United Kingdom but also further afield.
This Mini-Jack arrived at my Doll Emporium seeking a new home where it will be able to celebrate May Day and the Summer in the traditional way.
"Jack in the green am I
and master have I none
and whilst there are trees upon this land
the woods shall be my home.
To the seasons kings I bow my head
as they do bow to me
for my faces are as many
as the leaves upon a tree."
