55 GIANT STEEL BALLS

Recycled steel marine buoys, in fact.

Each one a welded 3,000 lb. sphere,
and bolted together in a giant strand.

Originally designed as a floating maritime blockade,
but now recycled and linked together
as an "objet d'art" at Laumeier Sculpture Park
in St. Louis County by artist, Donald Lipski.

(Check my math, but that makes this
a 82.5-ton work of art.)
