Mushroom? Or Dragon?

These sixteen-foot creatures await you in Las Pozas; two of Edward James's—what? Nightmares?


They look like lurid fungi from the swamps of Eridanus Beta IV. Maybe spores hitched a ride on the Enterprise.

From another angle they look like fanciful reptiles.


A sixteen-inch bronze of this sculpture rests on a table in my hotel.


The title of this work is Hongo o Dragon—Mushroom or Dragon.

I think it's neither. Just another curious growth shaped by the strange DNA in James's mind.
