The Son of Man / Le Fils de l'homme was a Surrealist painting completed by Rene Magritte. It shows a man wearing a business suit and bowler hat with his face hidden by a green apple.

The Son of Man in Bowler Hat with Green Apple Statue is part of the Parastone Museum Collection of collectible figurines. Made from resin with hand painted details.
