TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A giant head sculpture made from scrap steel is pictured with workers from Tung Ho Steel Enterprise Corp. (東和鋼鐵) Saturday.

In order to combine the iron industry, culture and art together, the Tung Ho Steel supports Taiwanese artists every year by giving them scrap metal to work with. The company is making preparations for its biannual sculpture exhibit, which showcases steel works of art created by artists and employees from the company. The exhibition is expected to open in the second half of the year.
