The Ceremony of Mushrooms

The Ceremony of Mushrooms is a surrealist, nonsensical re-interpretation of Illuminated manuscripts of the early Medival Era.

Mostly seen in astronomical drawings, a lot of medieval depictions of the astronomy of the heavens were purely speculative. These illustrations are peppered with almost ornamental depictions of the night sky as well as astrological speculation and iconography.

Playing up the speculative and unintentionally surrealist qualities of these illustrations, The Ceremony of Mushrooms depicts a nonsensical cult trying to tie together a humble low-lying fungi and the great expanses of our heavens.
