Swiss Ball Fountain at Tanglin Core

August 30, 2011

Swiss Ball Fountain was donated by the Swiss Community in Singapore in 1991 to celebrate the 700th Anniversary of the Swiss Confederation.

The granite ball, which took Swiss sculptor Mr Ueli Fausch three months to hand sculpt, measures 80 cm in diameter and weighs 700 kg. It fits perfectly into a 3-tonne basal block. Both were made from granite from Switzerland.

The ball is kept “afloat” by strong water pressure directed through the basal block.

The constant spinning of the ball represents people striving for excellence.
