Explanation

Found about 750 meters from the hypocenter. The bottle had been in a warehouse wrapped in straw when exposed to the heat rays.
The heat rays burnt the shadow of the straw onto the surface of the bottle. Even the barest of wrappings, such as paper and straw, were left as vivid marks by the heat rays.
