Mushy Skeli has fallen in love!!! (Though only from afar!). Meet Amanita Skelatrix…

The German mycologist Harald Othmar Lenz named and described this Fungi Amanita muscaria (L. ex Fr.) Pers. Ex Hooker in 1831. The Fly Agaric was traditionally used as an insecticide. The cap was broken up and sprinkled into saucers of milk. It's known to contain ibotenic acid, which both attracts and kills flies – Mushy Skeli thinks Amanita Skelatrix was using something of that nature to attract him. He has seen her many times now, hanging around the fairy circles.


The original print is from "Central European Mushrooms", 180 plates in 6-8 color offset printing after originals by Claus Caspari. This is plate nr. 114. Comprehensive description on the back. (Original titel:"Mitteleuropäische Pilze", 180 Tafeln in 6-8 farbigem Offsetdruck nach Originalen von Claus Caspari. Umfassende Beschreibung auf der Rückseite, Kronen-Verlag, Erich Cramer, Hamburg, 1963).

This original print is overpainted with Amanita Skelatrix in acrylic paints. Size: 26.9 x 18.9 cm (10.6 x 7.44 inches approx.). Signed and dated in pencil on back. Sold unmounted, no frame.

This is a lovingly painted, unique work of art! The actual colors might differ slightly from your monitor.
