This fungus is named The Artist's Conk for a very good reason. With a talented artist they can be turned in to works of art that can be proudly displayed in your home.The underside is where the spore producing surface is located. It is smooth and pure white and lends itself very well to being drawn or painted on by skilled hands. Each one will be unique,grown by Mother Nature and turned in to a work of art by a Nova Scotia artist.
They make a wonderful and unique gift for home or cottage,just the thing for a log cabin!
