Artist's Description

You thought you’ve seen everything possible in the pages of the Atlas, but once again, you’re proven wrong. A bunch of apparently “holy” mushrooms dominates this plate. You weren’t aware that mushrooms could have a religious status, but this group appears to have a positive aura and a halo, although the ‘shroom on the right has possibly erred a bit in life, since it’s being mostly left out of the halo…

“Color Plate 169” combines a photograph from freeimages member dragon_art and a painting created by my father, Gus Maier.

“The Atlas Of Dreams” is an ongoing project that began in 1999. Each plate is composed of several different images combined to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Complex borders around the images fade them into a white background. Source images include 19th century engravings, filtered stock photos, ArtMatic renders, astronomical photos of space and planetary surfaces, the paintings of my father, Gus Maier, and of course my own artwork – recycled and reused. Watch out for stray critters…
