The Art of the Japanese Manhole Cover

Wrote Kottke:

From steel scrap to testing the final product with a ton of water pressure, here's how Japanese manhole covers are made.

The video is perhaps a little long in parts, so I would not blame you for skipping ahead to ~12:10 to see how some of the covers are hand-painted in brilliant color.

More here and here.
