Manholes Disguised As Art

Who knew something so plain and unappealing like a manhole could actually be… pretty?  These are decorative manhole covers in Japan.  Look how intricate the designs are.  I love the concept and it makes me wonder what other designs are out there!  If anyone has any to share, please submit them here.  I would love to post them up to share.

    This is cool. I’ve seen a lot of painted manhole covers but nothing where the design is engraved. It would be nice to see something done with those huge gray electrical boxes at stop lights.

      I agree! Great way to disguise those ugly things!
