The "wild man" tradition emerges as a figure that celebrates seasonal transitions, life, death and fertility. They bring order to disorder. They communicate through stories and traditions, even as society becomes ever-more agnostic. These traditions often pre-date Christianity, of course, and have been equally been co-opted or manipulated. Nonetheless, anthropomorphic, animalistic creatures constructed from local vegetation, animal skins and other material appear to remind us of our primal history and ever-evolving relationship with nature.
They are our past, and our present. They are everything from outside of reality.
