Mushroom Whisperer Ancestor Doll
The Mushroom Whisperer guides us into the forest and through the woods, reminding us that the invisible web under the soil doesn't just allow the mushrooms to thrive, but enables communication with all living things in the forest.
On her body are embroidered mushrooms, and around her neck is a dried piece of mossy maze polypore collected by me in August.
This Ancestor Doll is part of a fibre project to raise funds for Nia Centre for the Arts, a Toronto-based not-for-profit organization that supports, showcases and promotes an appreciation of arts from across the African Diaspora.
As a form of fibre activism, each Ancestor Doll is made with the intention of working towards becoming a better ancestor. Cost: $175 USD + $15 USD for Shipping across North America.
*If you live outside North America, please contact me for additional shipping costs.
