Students from Xi’an’s Northwest University of Politics & Law impressed internet users by turning manhole covers into gorgeous works of art, Tencent news reports. So what if it might make it twice as hard for workers to identify the manholes in an emergency……..
The students used colored pens to draw special characters on the simple manhole covers. The students believe that “lively” manholes can beautify the school as well as help the freshmen fit into their new environment more easily.
Terracotta Warriors were some of the more impressive items depicted on the covers.
The manhole canvasses display everything from Totoros to bicycles.
