Comments:
The statue of an alligator emerging from a manhole cover is in a New York subway station, made by Tom Otterness.

The manhole cover from which the alligator emerges is typical of New York City manhole covers, for example Click for cover's details

A similar motif of using a manhole cover as part of a sculpture is found in the city of Bratislava Click for cover's details
