FRED #15 (Tennis, Anyone?) - Sculptures

Creator not accepting inquiries

Number 15 in Bandhu's FRED marble machine series (Faith Reduces Energy Depletion). The clients are avid tennis players, so the mechanism was adorned with nets and rackets, and the marbles made to resemble tennis balls. Turning the handcrank makes the marbles march up to the top, at which point they swirl back down to the bottom to repeat the cycle. About 12 inches tall.
