Cyathus olla fungus made from paper mache (Darder collection, 1916).

One of the displays in the Darder Exhibition is dedicated to the natural sciences shop that Francesc Darder used to run in Barcelona. There he sold science materials for primary and secondary schools. The exhibit therefore includes educational materials, among which is a collection of 32 paper mache mushrooms made by the renowned French model company Auzoux. Many items, such as these fungi, are partially disassembled so you can see inside, or they are cut in a sagittal plane.
