Rising up ... RISE

RISE sculpture in Belfast

It'll not be long before the smaller ball will be hoisted up and dropped into the middle of the larger, outer ball.

The scale of Wolfgang Buttress' sculpture is finally clear, and within a few weeks the Balls on the Falls RISE will be finished and drivers will no longer be so distracted with the mechanics of its construction, making Broadway Roundabout a safer place to drive around.

AKA the balls on the falls.

I'm looking forward to the 20-30 odd flagpoles they've planned around the base of it. How quickly will they be adorned with the two flags of our disjoint nations?

Anyone taking odds on how long after completion it becomes the most popular Planking hotspot for the city's youth?
