As an advocate for video games as art, I love gorgeous creations like this. Amy Leigh Davis of Radiance Art is the creator of this beautiful stained glass Super Mario Bros mushroom, and brings up some deep, penetrating questions about our favorite fungi in the Mushroom Kingdom.
The classic Mario Bros. Super Mushroom–available by bashing your head into the nearest floating brick. Sure, you grow twice your natural height, but what about the headache? And how does one go about consuming any item of food the same size you are?
She’s right about everything… except questioning how to eat food that’s the same size as yourself. Give me an Eric Smith sized Wendy’s chicken nugget any day, and I’ll show you how it’s done. Nomnomnom.
But I digress.
Have a look at the Super Mushroom, which “pays homage to early Nintendo with its 8-bit styling. Look close–the red and the clear glasses both have subtle textures, and the white is wispy.” It’ll run you $175 on Etsy.
