Making history in the Mall
Apr 2021
Adelaide's Rundle Mall is a highlight of the South Australian capital. Apart from the historic shopfronts, the Two Balls stand out as a quirky post-Modern sculpture; you can get a an unusual selfie, reflected in these balls. Is it art? Who cares, it's fun!

Great for photo reflections
May 2021
Just like the one in Chicago you can take of photo with your reflection.

With 2 round balls on top of one another it’s something that the kids love to do.

It’s also a great meeting place as it’s an iconic sculpture in the Rundle Street Mall.

These Balls stand out when walking through the Mall and contrast beautifully with the historical buildings. An iconic symbol of Adelaide.

One Shiny Ball Atop Another Shiny Ball
Mar 2021
The nice""Old Jack"said be kind as those stainless steel balls are nice and shiny with smudge marks all over and would not have been easy to construct and stick one on top of the other and keep it there until the glue cured. The more synical "Öld Jack"said "shiny balls are just shiny balls" and with all respect to Bert Flugelman who created this display it is not that creative but there again none of my artwork is on show and Bert's is and is even displayed on T Shirts. and a meeting place in Adelaide The bronze pigs further in hit the mark better but I suppose it is all a matter owhat you see as art.

balancing balls!

An iconic feature of Rundle Mall, Popular meeting place, can't miss them!! Such a simple structure which always fascinates all of us walking through the mall. Since it was cleaned and polished, it appears so much brighter!

how I saw god himself
Sep 2020
I creamed my pants when I saw this beautiful structure. it is perhaps the largest balls i have ever seen. it is very unique comparing to the lame Eiffel Tower, Great Wall of China, Kremlin in Russia, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Great Pyramid of Giza, Sydney Opera House, Statue of Liberty, Taj Mahal, Moai and Machu Picchu. there is a possibility to see god if you go here.

If you're on Rundle Mall, the balls can't be avoided. Locals seem enamoured of them. It's a scupture with reflective surfaces which most just pass without note.

Rundle mall street is most happening place at Adelaide. You can buy anything and everything from there. There are twin balls and pigs statues at rundle street which looks awesome. Twin balls will surprise us on how they maintenance the balance though it's very simple structure. No vehicles are allowed to inter rundle street so you can walk carefree. The place has malls and top supermarkets, banks etc. There is a tram station (rundle mall) next to it which makes this place very accessible.its within city limit so tram is free.
