Beijing Olympic have element theme in it:

The bird nest = Earth
The water cube = water
The torch = clouds/air

so we only missing fire...LOL over all I like it so far, better that last Olympic's theme - "water", but Athen only use it on poster, Beijing put the theme design to all the building even the torch.

Very nice. It looks like an expensive ancient chinese ornament.
I think the sacred olympic flame will look amazing being carried by such an object around the planet.
