A Phantasy of Steel

A giant steel block lost its form while being hammered at a factory. Instead of melting it down and recasting it, the workmen decided that it looked like a piece of abstract art. So they polished it up and submitted it to the 1964 Documenta III art and design exhibition in Kassel, Germany.

When the directors of the exhibition discovered it was the result of an industrial accident, they had it removed from the show.
