Big Red Ball

I notice in these blogs recently, that there has been a lot of red and blue - and many spheres of some sort or another. The orb is a sign of authority and power - and of course, the universe. This particular sphere is part of the fence that borders the beach in Bray. I loved the red colour and the layers of paint. But most of all, I liked the blue post holding the sphere up. The sphere itself was described by Plato as universal. It has the same distance from the centre to any point on the circumference.
