If you've previously thought that empty soda, beer or energy drink cans belonged in a trash can, get ready to change your mind as you gaze upon the wonders that are Japanese artist Makaon's can-based sculptures.Makaon's website, "Empty Can Craft" shows just what can be done with a lot of empty cans, some imagination and a lot of patience. Who could have imagined that Asashi Super Dry beer cans could become Darth Vader's helmet? How many people looked at Coca-Cola cans and thought, "Sure, I could make Ultraman out of those?" And, seriously: How amazing is that Batman sculpture?

If this is where skill, vision and the results of an unending thirst collide, then it's a beautiful place that I wish we could all visit.
