What does Mine Shaft 4 mean?

BEST DAY EVER! Thanks for the Limited Edition reprint!

MrFourFinger: A mine shaft is a tunnel into the ground that people used to dig for gold. The shirt is about a tragic even of a Miner that finally found his gold but was not able to get out of the mine due to a cave in that buried him alive. The 4 represents the number of the mine shaft and the X represents that the mine shaft was closed due to the events. The gold nugget near the skeleton was the one piece of treasure that this miner had risked his life for and lost.

Other than that it is a cool shirt with a Skeleton, a Number, a big black X, and some cool Foil printing.

The explanation behind the design is good and much needed. I was about to ask the same question as Mr 4 Fingers there. As for the hidden elements, that’s pretty smart, especially the 13!
