Zebra crossings generally serve a functional purpose, allowing pedestrians to cross a street while indicating to drivers to give way.
Most zebra crossings are made up of the standard blockish black and white stripes. But there are the rare few exceptions.
At the Singapore Zoo, you may come across zebra crossings which have been painted with black and white stripes that look like they belong on the African animal.
A more rare and unique zebra crossing can be found in the midst of town. However, few may even realise that it is there.

Piano Keyboard Zebra Crossing At Esplanade
There is a zebra crossing which is painted based on the black and white keys of the piano keyboard. Where can you find it? At the out ramp from the drop off point at the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
This is obviously an appropriate spot since the Esplanade is a centre for the arts, including music. Countless piano players have tickled the black and white keys at the national durian.
The piano keyboard zebra crossing at Esplanade almost requires a span of two octaves to cover the roadway. It starts off from the note F and ends at E just before two Fs above.
It is cute and quirky feature at the performing arts centre. Something you can look out for if you are ever in the vicinity.
