Industrial remnants being swallowed by the forest, the old coke ovens like the creepy, cavelike one in this art photograph make me think more of gypsies, hobbits, monsters, and mystery than they do fuel. The black gaping maw, the tree roots grasping the opening and the red side of the mound like many fingers...the effect is beautifully eerie.

Long unused but still there, the caves are slowly fading back into nature, bright green moss creeping up an over the brick, grass and roots digging into the foundations.

Professionally printed on archival-quality 5x7 photo paper, the image itself has a white border for ease of framing and to protect the image itself.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Once upon a time, these ovens converted coal into coke, which was used in the blast furnaces of steel factories. There are many small canals running through here that were to facilitate the movement of coal from the ovens to where it needed to go. They've been turned into a historical site by the state of Ohio, but it doesn't look as if it's visited very often.

Materials Used
