Fun-Gal Stone Mushroom Wall Plaque by Carruth Studio
Chefs and gardeners alike will enjoy this Fun-Gal Stone Mushroom Wall Plaque by Carruth Studio, especially those who like wordplay. If a mushroom is a fungus (among us), and the plural of fungus is fungi (fun-guy) then why wouldn't there be a fun-gal as well At least that's what artist George Carruth thinks. In his own words, "Since mushrooms fall into the category of fungi, I couldn't resist making a fun-gi and fun-gal mushroom plaque."
Whether you like puns or not, there's no arguing that this fungal femme fatale is ready to head out on the town. She's sporting stylish glasses, lovely earrings, and she even has a darling little ladybug on her "cap." She'll look right at home on a kitchen wall, but since she is hand-cast in weather-durable stone, she'll be just as happy in an outdoor location.
This charming stone mushroom plaque is reproduced from an original sculpture by George Carruth, who began his career as a sculptor for American Greeting Cards. He later found success selling his original works at art shows across the country, and as a result, he and his wife, Deborah, launched Carruth Studio in 1983. They've been sharing George's art with the world ever since.
