The Rolling Ball Web
An Online Compendium of Rolling Ball Sculptures, Clocks, Etc.
By David M. MacMillan et. al.
Rick McKittrick took the following photos of Rhoads' Eurydice in 2001 and has graciously shared them. This collection also includes three photographs of two "do it yourself" rolling ball sculptures/activities at the same location.
McKittrick indicates that Eurydice was built by Rhoads in 1990. It is triangular in shape, and about 4 feet by 6 feet in size.
The total size of all of the images below is about 720 kilobytes.
