Manhole Cover Print T-Shirt, Spirit of Detroit. Grey Crew Neck Unisex Shirt

$ 32.00

Manhole Cover Print T-Shirt, Spirit of Detroit. Ever go "drainspotting?" Often adorned with intricate text and imagery, these 300b cast iron giants we drive over every day are perfect improvised printing plates for shirts! We make these tees celebrating civic pride by applying waterbase printing ink directly to the metal, with a reverse print occurring as the result. While we don't know the date this particular drain cover was created, we think the hand and sun rays references Marshall Fredricks' iconic Spirit of Detroit sculpture located at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center on Woodward Avenue.
