Nevertheless we had a lovely time and after surfacing from the cavernous mushroom nursery, I bought a cute twinned mushroom statue, carved out of the famous local limestone.
Today, while cleaning mushrooms for our Sunday lunch - Vol-au-vent (Queen's morsel) - I found a perfect copy of the statue among this lot ...
And here they are ... model and statue, side by side. A perfect copy!
It would be hard to tell them apart (except for the size, of course), if it weren't for the square platform on which the stone copy sits, wouldn't it?
