Historically, gazing balls, which are a type of garden sphere, were used by kings and queens to bring luck and beauty to their properties. Some of the legends say that such spheres had the power to ward off evil spirits, bad luck, and sickness. Today, a garden sphere is used to accent outdoor, adding a bit of enchantment or drawing attention to a specific area.
Spheres are supported by a metal base or can be placed directly on the ground. The spheres are dyed concrete in abstract patterns.
