Horeses Hoof Fungus....Forum Challenge.
16”x12” 2b, 4b, 6b pencils on cartridge paper. Apart from a few clumps of Moss, the overall colour of the birch tree and the fungus are the same......grey. This fungus is mainly found on birch trees and a few beech trees, it has been used by man for a few thousand years, mainly as a tinder for lighting fires. It’s also been used, depending on the continent, for medicinal uses and to make clothing. Apparently the Iceland man of 5,000 years old had a few strips of this on his person when found.
