Interesting Ceramic Mushrooms

£10.00

Three ceramic mushrooms (amanita phalloides), in various stages of development, and grouped together in a way that suggests the generative power of the Earth (or something!).

Handcrafted in Cornwall, and based on an exhibit in the Museum that has a long history of causing amusement to our visitors.

Amanita phalloides (the death cap mushroom) is closely related to (but even more poisonous than) the fly agaric mushroom, well known for its hallucinogenic properties and association with Shamanism and nature spirits such as elves and piskies.

Approximately 11cm (4.25″) tall.
