Literally Balling's Latest Crystal Sculpture Holds Fragments of Vintage Basketballs

“A vessel for competition, a vessel for community, a vessel for creativity.”

Artist Victor Solomon‘s Literally Balling imprint has just released two new sculptural basketballs.

Titled the Fragment Vessel, the sculpture is of a 200mm molded crystal basketball that sees hand-painted gold enamel seams and is filled with vintage basketballs. The description reads: “The basketball is a vessel – a vessel for competition, a vessel for community, a vessel for creativity.”

Available in a “Full” size and “Halftime” size, both editions are limited to 100 pieces and will take six to eight weeks for delivery. Those interested can head over to Literally Balling where they are selling for $500 and $200 USD, respectively.
