Enchanted Forest Mushroom #14


Spalted maple mushroom cap on a maple tree, with roots in a wood base. This tree has one root that doubles back up to the tree's trunk, and another root that doubles three quarters of the way back.  The colour of the wood base reveals the distinct boundary of the heartwood and sapwood. The base was cut from wood I salvaged from some old, dismantled shelving. It stands 48 centimetres tall.
