Just realized that the Rio "cauldron" is, well the decorative Howe-designed part anyway, the first show "orb" for lack of a better word, suspended for an Opening Ceremony rather than being held in place from the ground or wherever, from the bottom.

I suspect that the use of a traditional support underneathj the cauldron itself is a safety requirement- we wouldn't want the flame to burn through its own supports!

Altho the one used for the Oscars is of a different design -- it doesn't have the spheres and discs that the Rio one had.  

Probably all Anthony Howe's sculptures have variations from each other- he's an artist, not an artisan.
