    This is made of painted metal - all soldered. I call it a bucky ball because it reminds me of the wonderful architectural shapes created by Buckminster Fuller. It could be a model of a molecule or something. I don't know, but i really like these. I have a couple more which are a little different, but i like this one. It's a very strong structure which he promoted in architecture for most of his professional career.
