2010 Cauldronby alenin CONCEPTon Posted on February 19, 2010March 18, 2022 Cauldron is always the best kept secret during the preparation of the Olympic Ceremonies. Hopefully.. Here is the concept illustration… and previz of the exterior cauldron lighting.
Can you explain the sybolism of the cauldron. People were telling me is suppose to look like a maple leaf. Another theory is that the four pillar represent the four host nations and the middle cauldron represent Canada. Can you clear this up. Thank you.
“Canada is fire in the ice” that was the main idea for the cauldron as well as the whole Opening. To my knowledge, there was no other specific symbolism in number and the look of the cauldron elements, but you can read it however you want.
Thank you for your reply Alen. I really like the design of the cauldron. I really wanted to know more why David Atkins design it like that.
Here’s a pic of the cauldron that reminds me of the maple leaf.
