The West Coast Story
Fungi have always been my favourite canvases to paint, beginning with the hunt deep in the rain forest. This particular fungi is from Mt. Elphinstone on the Sunshine Coast. I harvested it from a second growth block that I laid out to be logged when I was a Forest Tech. I can still vividly remember the extreme weight of it, loaded into the back of my cruiser vest, as I started the long hot hike back to the truck.
Traditionally, First Nations Tribes gathered Forest Echoes along the West Coast for their medicinal and energetic properties. They believed that they caused echoes in the woods and placed them in their houses for protection from dark energy. As saprophytes they create new life from death, and are revered for their potent immune boosting compounds that may very well save the world one day.
