I liked the Mall's Balls Statue. It reflects anything and anyone on the Mall's Balls. It is fun and attractive. Some people make faces. Also by standing by the Mall's Balls Statue you can see everything around us. That was cool! Worthwhile to see!

Interesting to see those two mirrored balls in the Rundle Mall, they're really cool. Not quite the draw of Cloud Gate in Chicago, but worth a look.

As a resident of Adelaide, I had to laugh at many of the critical comments regarding this somewhat famous (or infamous) sculpture. The Hindmarsh Building Society donated Bert Flugelman's sculpture to the city in 1977. Originally called 'Spheres', it didn't take long before the locals...More
