Protector No. 9: Nourishment

from 15.00

No. 9/10 of the Protector Series: I am selling prints and original drawings of Protectors to raise funds for organizations or causes.

The Protector of Nourishment, also known as the Mushroom Man, is a botanist and plant collector who has the ability to grow a variety of fungi, lichens, and mosses on his skin. His life’s goal is to collect the seeds or spores of every edible plant or fungus on the planet. He maintains several secure seedbanks around the globe, although their ultimate purpose and exact locations are unknown to anyone except himself. He collects plant materials in his pouch, then returns to his laboratory to properly extract and preserve the seeds. A certain variety of mushroom that grows on the Mushroom Man’s person, Agaricus plenus, has special properties. When removed from his skin, planted in a clay pot during a full moon, and presented by the Mushroom Man to a hungry person, one of these mushrooms will provide complete nourishment to that person, for as long as his instructions are followed: Potted Agaricus plenus must never see the light of day; If the mushroom is harvested at night, it will regrow itself by the following morning; If it is willingly shared with one other hungry person, both will be full; The owner of an Agaricus plenus must place the pot in a fire once a year to purify the mushroom and regenerate it, otherwise it will blacken and die.
