The Mad Scientists of Etsy decided to take on the theme of mycology, the study of mushrooms. They are quite remarkable life forms. I have chosen to add fly agaric to my cabinet of curiosities.

Amanita muscaria is the quintessential toadstool, the large, deep read, white-gilled, white-spotted mushroom we see in popular culture, from illustrations in children's literature to video games. It is commonly known as the fly agaric or fly Amanita. It is a poisonous and psychoactive basidiomycete fungus, native throughout the temperate and boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere, found in association with various deciduous and coniferous trees. It also plays a role in the religions of Siberia and possibly also in ancient Scandinavian culture. The name Fly Agaric likely comes from its use in Europe as an insecticide, when sprinkled in milk.

This is an original lino block print in red with a hint of brown on Japanese kozo paper. The sheets are about 3.5 inches by 6.25 inches or 9 cm by 16 cm. The first edition was printed all in red and the second edition, listed here was coloured 'à la poupée' allowing multiple colours from a single block. The edition is limited to 6 prints.

The final photo shows how I've framed my own copy in a vintage frame. (The frame is not included in this listing).
