mr. cool chimera
This one's from my recent archives. The French sentence, "Parfois le rire de Dada fait pousser une chimère," means "Sometimes Dada's laugh makes a chimera grow." (A chimera is a mythical beast composed of three different creatures.) Foot is that of a Rüppell's vulture (Gyps rueppellii), resident of the African plains. Middle section is the stinky part of a wild arum (Arum maculatum), related to the famous giant corpse flower. The human (Homo sapiens) is from a 1950s ad by Clipper Craft men's clothes for their "Mr. Cool" suit. Speech bubble is from Haunted comics.
