Snapshot Saturday: Manhattan Sentinels

This public art is located in Downtown Manhattan in New York City at 26 Federal Plaza. The totemic sculptures are made of cast-iron and range in height between 36 feet to 39 feet. These sculptures by Beverly Pepper are often mistaken as a memorial to 9/11 as the totems are perceived to be part of building materials from the World Trade Center. The sculptures actually pre-date 9/11.
