Quite a Set of Choppers In DUMBO

These enormous teeth (four feet high) in Empire-Fulton Ferry Park, DUMBO, Brooklyn, are entitled "Global Gobblers," and they're by Steven Kroeger.

According to, the original installation contained a large, inflatable earth ball inside the jaws; the sculpture emerged in response to the abuse at Abu Ghraib prison.

The piece is part of BWAC's outdoor sculpture show.
