|:||Thomas Heatherwick was the mastermind behind one of the best-kept secrets of the Opening Ceremony - the cauldron. Featuring 204 copper petals, each representing one of the competing nations which were brought to the stadium by each team as part of the athletes’ procession, the petals were then attached to long pipes in a ring at the centre of the arena. In the climax of the ceremony the individual flames spread between the petals, converging on the cauldron to create one giant flame.|
