Report London 2012 Olympic Cauldron... in London 2012 Ceremonies Discussions Posted July 28, 2012 As a piece of attrative design, this cauldron really only works from its dead-center looking bottom-up. So that's to say that it dosen't work. From every other angle, it looks like a bunch of tightly packed trees in the winter whose tops are on fire. Oh no, I disagree, you have to see it from the side - it's terrific. (Not, of course, that you can see it, as it's in the stadium.) Seeing the TV coverage of the ceremony and cauldron, compared with the reality in the stadium, has reminded me of how TV can, you know, not always tell the truth. NY20?? - great photos, what's the source?
