“Tai Chi Lion” depicts the yin and yang symbol.

An exhibit of artworks by former prison inmates opened at Taichung City Dadun Cultural Center on Tuesday.

Pan Hsin-hsiao, who specialized in making lion heads for traditional Chinese lion dances, had been in prison since 2008. He later returned to his former profession but would have given up if it had not been for encouragement from his family, his mentor and the Taichung branch of the Taiwan After-care Association.

Pan’s piece is a black and white lion head named “Tai Chi Lion” depicting the yin and yang symbol.

The exhibit has 140 works on display and will run until November 28.
