The Italian Job: "Jim" from San Gim

This magnificent fellow, a ceramic wall-fountain, caught my eye in San Gimignano. With foliage and fruit covering his head I think he is probably some sort of harvest fertility symbol akin to the Green Man mythology in England.

Though he looks quite fearsome, of course he had to go into the quilt.
