    here's what I found out:
    The 2010 Olympic Torch, designed and manufactured by Bombardier in collaboration with the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC), is a symbol of the 2010 Winter Games, and will carry the Olympic Flame across Canada on its 45,000-kilometre journey. Twelve-thousand torchbearers will hold an Olympic Torch as they move through 1,037 communities across Canada. Over 90 per cent of the Canadian population will have an opportunity to see the beauty of the Olympic Torch and experience the warmth of the Olympic Flame.

    Designer/Manufacturer: Bombardier/VANOC

    Inspiration: Canada’s open land, vast potential and smooth, fluid lines left in the snow and ice from winter sports

    A bit off topic, but an example of a Haida transformation mask. Click on the photo for the transformation. Pretty impressive stuff.
