This painting illustrates a scene underground in a coal mine, as the miner and horse haul the coal along the underground track to the surface or shaft. The subject of work and of Wales's working class communities were what interested the artist, Tony Evans. Evans knew the south Wales mining communities well. He became a full-time artist following his retirement from industry. He experimented with a number of styles and some of his most successful works bear a resemblance to stained glass, with its black outlines and jewel-like colours.
