art163

This steel sculpture found at Sungai Ujong Road depicts barbers who once set up their business along the Prangin Canal back in the old days of Penang. Hairs which were cut were apparently thrown by the barber shops into the canal during that time. Sungai Ujong Road also marks the end point of the former Prangin River. Sungai Ujong Road serves as the connection between Prangin Road and Kimberley Street.
