The name “Amanita” is chosen for this style because of its similarities to Amanita Muscaria mushrooms; the patterns on this style resemble the bumps on the caps of the mushroom. These patterns gradually grow out of the surface of the sculpture and have an alien organic look to them. There are various flavors to these patterns, specific only to Amanita and Harmala styles. The general form also comes in different variations as the other styles.
Amanita Muscaria is a type of mushroom which have red caps with white dots on them. These mushrooms are tightly associated with the winter solstice and the rebirth of the sun. They have been used for spiritual ceremonies and shamanic rituals throughout history.
