Stinky Squid, Needle Felted Wool Mushroom Sculpture


Stinky Squid, pseudocolus schellenbergiae - Three orange arms, arching outward and fused at tips, arising from common short, whitish stalk; odor fetid. Spore mass greenish black, slimy, and distributed along inner surfaces of arms.

Nothing says friendship more than the foul stench of the stinky squid mushroom! Makes a lovely gift for the mycophile in your life, without the actual stank of a live one.

This mycological specimen is created by needle felting — the artful and time consuming process of hand shaping wool with a sharp, barbed needle.

Sculpture dimensions are approximately 3" x 3" x 7 1/2" and it was created with roving wool and a vintage pot which reads "A token of friendship".

Item ships with a handmade tag containing a description of the specimen and arrives carefully packed with recycled shipping materials.

This item is not a toy and is not recommended for children. All works come from a tobacco free, one dog home.

Thanks for looking!
