The Centennial Olympic Caldron is mounted above a 132-foot tower and accessible by a 190-foot long bridge. It is essentially a piece of sheet steel rolled into a cone. Even though it is 21 feet tall, it appears dwarfed by the structure on which it stands. Conceived by Minnesota-based artist Siah Armajani, the caldron uses tiles of Georgia red clay to trace the top edge of the spiral formed by the twisting of the cone.
