Granite ball

A closer shot of the granite ball situated on the new parking area of the South End Museum (see here).  The ball is one of the 2010 FIFA World Cup legacy projects that were identified before the World Cup.  It is felt by a lot of people that too much money was waisted on this and that the money could have been better spent somewhere else.  I think the only way to really make it work for the city is to make it a monument to a succesful 2010 FIFA World Cup that was staged in the city.  Something for people to remember the World Cup by.

  2. Awesome !! Fabulous picture! The 'Powers that be" should surely make it a monument! I doubt that anyone of us living in this area will forget the momentous occasion in our City! *thumbs up*

  3. It's nice as a sculpture and tribute. I'd like it in my yard.

  4. Suppose the NMMM had to get a strong man to lift that ball - or it rolled down the hill and came to a rest.

    Great angle and pleasing background. Well done Jonker!

    Best wishes for the New Year!

  5. I wonder if any pranksters have tried to roll away the ball....
    Hope you're off to a good start in 2011!

  6. It looks great - a nice memory cast in stone. Lets hope that the real legacy of our successful world cup is as solid and shiny clean!
