Take A Stroll Through This Fiberglass Medusa's Garden

Littering the field behind the workshop of giant-building firm Fiberglass Animals, Shapes, and Trademarks (FAST) is an eerie collection of titanic molds, left over from almost every job they've ever done.

FAST specializes in creating giant, eye-grabbing figures and items, the likes of which one might see outside of kitschy roadside restaurants and gas stations across the country. After a job, the company keeps the mold, which is often bigger than the piece itself, and stores it in the field out back. Now there are hundreds of giant unpainted forms scattered all across the lot in every imaginable variety and shape. There are giant skulls and colossal dogs; over-sized Santa Clauses and titanic mice. The fiberglass of the molds has weathered, giving the molds the feeling of ancient stone, as though the yard was left over from some surreal ancient culture.

The operators of FAST welcome visitors who want to stroll among the bizarre rural collection. They do warn you to look out for hornet's nests, although whether they mean giant or otherwise is unclear. Thanks to Atlas user jenlukehart we can catch a glimpse of this amazing plastic boneyard.
