Ganoderma Applanatum
etching on fungus
David Moiel, MD

 

From the artist: “After supplying trail treats (food) to Pacific Crest Trail thru-hikers on Park Ridge, we descended to Russell Lake, capturing Mt Jefferson’s midday reflection in the lake. I etched this image on an artist’s conk, Ganoderma applanatum. The mycelium of this shelf mushroom produce enzymes that acceler-ate brown rot in dead trees. Medicinal teas have also been created from its inedible flesh.”


Dr Moiel is a retired Surgeon from the Northwest Permanente Medical Group.
