In the Photo of the Week feature, we highlight an exceptionally amazing photograph submitted by an Atlas Obscura user.

This week we present a lush and eerie photo in which a handless mouse welcomes visitors to the FAST Fiberglass Mold Graveyard. This menagerie of hollow statuary was brought to us by Atlas user jenlukehart, aka Jen Lukehart, who had this to say about the luck of the wanderer which led to the shot:

A road trip through Wisconsin is abundant with oddball sites, and on this particular day we were feeling like we’d never get anywhere at the rate we were moving, but the notion of a fiberglass sculpture graveyard seemed impossible to pass up! I giddily tried to capture both the details of the molds themselves, as well as the sheer scope of this amazing place.


Thanks to all of our adventurous users who keep submitting such amazing shots! Want to have your photograph featured?
