Balls on the Falls

Belfast’s largest sculpture the Rise or ‘Balls on the Falls’ as it is known locally, has been completed thanks to the extensive use of aerial lifts and cranes. The 37.5 metre high by 30 metre wide sculpture uses 2,400 mild steel powder coated tubes and was designed by Wolfgang Buttress and originally conceived in 2009, but finally completed and erected in the third quarter of 2011.
