Caps off to the spring mushroom season! Whether you’re a well-informed forager, seasoned shroom snacker, or just a regular fun-gi, these two new Amy Ross editions are for you. Man-shroom and Lady-shroom are the crème de la cremini of Ross’s realm of bipedal beauties. And we’re extra excited to introduce these leggy veggies to you all as they’re the direct descendants of our very first 20x200 edition: Manshroom—the OG head hongo. (We promise, we’ll try to use the shroom puns spore-ingly).
Ladies first! The long-legged Lady-shroom is a real smooth operator. This curvy gal’s hips form the base of a double mushroom stalk that clearly knows about that Kim K contouring. She’s all about those neutrals, and that pose? Unboletable.
Man-shroom on the other hand is a tad more colonial than come-hither. This wide-brimmed button top is a stately specimen with corpulent heft—a portly porcini, if you will. Clad in culottes and shod in les chaussures fit for the French Court, Man-shroom is très chic. Oui, Oui!
Ross’s fantastical fungi aren’t alone in this anthropomorphic vegeverse. They’ve got company in lettuce, turnips, and berries, oh my! From Fruits of Leisure to Fairy Ring, Ross has been dreaming up produce à pied for years. These flora (+ some fauna!) celebrate our wonderful, weird, interwoven web of life. And we don’t want to truffle any feathers but these two newbies just might be our fave Ross roots yet.
These ambulatory agaricuses are a joyful homage to earth’s offerings and the interconnectedness of all life through Ross’s whimsical artistic wizardry. It’s her way of appreciating our shared vulnerability, and blurring our presumed boundaries. Morel of the story? All mushrooms are magic.
