Fun/interesting public art
I was just thinking a thread on this could be entertaining... Got anything fun or interesting to share?

Like the see-through toilet http://www.snopes.com/photos/arts/toilet.asp

There was also a pointing hand/face submerged in the water in the center of Stockholm, it might still be there... Haven't been downtown in a while...

When I saw this thread title, The see through toilet just came in my head...
If I ever see one, I will walk up to it and stare at whoever is inside and make it look like I can see them

That's awesome. I'll take pictures around San Diego, you can adopt a power box and paint them.

There are more interesting graffiti/murals around Seattle, but this is just one I had on my computer. I took it on the way home from school one evening.
