Green Goat Glass - Weekend reflections

Sometime back, Sissy and I visited the old Dammasch State Hospital Dump.  Not many people know where it is located these days.  There was an incinerator at the hospital which melted and burned most of the hospital's garbage.  That waste was then dumped along a ravine, now hidden by trees and undergrowth.

Today one can find beauty amidst nature's attempts to cover this scar.  Hidden in the moss and forest flowers you can find all kinds of things at the dump -- twisted glass, vintage jars, tiny glass bottles, along with spoons, knives and forks.

The melted piece of glass above reminded me of a mythical creature--sort of like a goat with a unicorn horn!  What do you think?

Same idea than you pops in mind, when I look to this melted piece of glass. It remind a little the rams of the Karnak temple in Egypt ( because of the shape of the horn.
