Many petrified (or fossilized) ancient ships found in the country of Oman. Look closely at the patterns in the rock formations and you can make out some of the wood ship construction techniques. I'll be searching throughout the world for more petrified ships to image and catalog. I'm also going to attempt drawing a layout of a ship with some of the more common assembly configurations I'm seeing. You can look at a document about petrified wood in this album too.
