FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- The head of a giant alligator made up entirely by reclaimed parts will be floating through Fort Lauderdale.
Hollywood artist Lloyd Goradesky and Florida Everglades historian Cesar Becerra are launching the 40-ton artwork on Monday. It's titled "Floating Tile Art: Gator in the Bay."
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports (http://sunsent.nl/QYMuvo ) a self-propelled barge built into the head will steer the piece, while a crane boom inside will open and close the gator's mouth to about three stories high.
The artwork will end up on Biscayne Bay where it will float in the area throughout Art Basel, an international art fair that will celebrate its 11th year in South Florida this month.
