The straightforward definition of steel is a metal consisting of iron and carbon. The symbolism behind the word is much more complex. Determined, unyielding, strong, bold and resolute come to mind. Dan Stotten captures the spirit of “made of steel” in his artistic portrayal of the Terracotta Warrior named Steel Unwoken. As I gazed into the eyes of the warrior, I recognized the strength in his unwavering gaze. And for a moment, I thought there was life….ready to be woken.
