Also known as the Fly Agaric, these dried mushroom caps are yellow to red in color and speckeled with white. Amanita muscaria var. muscaria (Fly Agaric) is perhaps the most fascinating plant on this beautiful planet: It has been accused of being everything from the fruit that Adam & Eve ate in the Garden of Eden, to the true origin of Christmas and his flying reindeer, to the inspiration for countless religious sects including Buddhism, Hinduism, and even Christianity. The Amanita has a history unlike any other mushroom, yet has been veiled in mystery for thousands of years. Does the fact that Amanita muscaria caps were later replaced with parasols in Indian art, and the fact that the Sanskrit word for Amanita muscaria and parasol is the exact same word have any significance? Can the remaining Amanita cults in Siberia, or the Inuit and Wapaq Tribes provide us with vital clues to the mystery surrounding the true identity of Soma being the Fly Agaric?
