Manhole Cover Art
Looking every bit as if Jung had created hundreds of Mandalas and flung them onto the streets of Japan, manholes create their own sort of strange art. This site of Japanese manholes is fabulous! Perhaps art is in the eyes of the beholder, after all.
And if you thought manhole hunting was an isolated hobby, here's yet another interesting manhole site
The below image came from a site that was online at 6 a.m. this morning but WHOOSH they were gone. Pat and I have decided that they either got trapped in a sewer somewhere and couldn't pay their bills or are off in China too busy meditating on a manhole cover there:-) Oh well....sigh.
Manhold cover from New Zealand
FRIDAY NOTE: THE SITE IS BACK. SEE IT HERE (They must've left their manhole cover and discovered they were missing:-)
Below is an example of a Mandala from this site.
A Mandala is a complex circular design, often used in healing, meditation and/or prayer. The word 'Mandala' comes from Sanskrit and means 'healing circle' or 'whole world'.
So.....start strolling down your street and get ready to meditate!
