Oreo Manhole Cover by Andrew Lewicki

Artist Andrew Lewicki creates a sculpture inspired by the iconic Nabisco cookie titled, “Oreo Manhole Cover.”

A mere 28 inches wide and made of cast iron, the sculpture takes the famous pattern and transforms it into something you'd only find in the sweetest of dreams.

Myeh. Seems like 90-years of recycling original surrealist and dada concepts would be enough to satisfy any hunger for more. This here's pretty much a movie prop—and with product placement—on a nice hardwood laminate floor, isn't it?
I'd've thought Claes Oldenburg pretty much hammered the last nail in the coffin of over-sized-common-objects-in-uncommon-places-art a long time ago.
Six, two, and even the CEO of Nabisco's about to buy himself a "woyk ov awt".
