Some Ossining residents say a piece of art dubbed "The Eye of Sauron" that graces Henry Gourdine Park looks more like a concrete wishbone than it does a work of art.
Some more detractors say the 42-foot-tall concrete arch looks like something from "Jurassic Park" instead of its "Lord of the Rings" namesake inspiration or that it's "nothing special." Others say it looks like a natural piece of the park.
Peter Lundberg, the artist behind the towering arch, says he's just glad it's generating conversation.
He told News 12 in a statement that he was commissioned to create the work in 2015 by a real estate developer and that "public art should not be so boring as to never be jarring or confrontational."
