Nike continues its impressive adverts by creating a huge ‘Ballman World Cup 2010‘ sculpture made from almost 3,000 footballs suspended from steel wire ropes giving it the illusion that it’s floating in the air.

The cool sculpture is located inside a Carlton Shopping Centre – in the ‘footballest’ city in the world at the moment – in Johannesburg, South Africa for the Fifa World Cup. The sculpture is a masterpiece by Leeds based Ratcliff Fowler Design. The rigging of the balls was done by Summit Steel.

Ballman will stay in place for the whole World Cup tournament, and when dismantled, the plan is that the footballs will be given away. [via We Heart (UK)]
