London 2012: The reason it works so successfully is that the Olympic Park is actually a park. There are grassy sitting areas, rivers and streams running through the site, and even ducks swimming. The stadiums are designed and spread around the park like artworks in an epic sized sculpture garden. Hopefully, the care to keep it as much a park as possible will limit the post-games problems of other Olympic sites becoming massive soulless abandoned concrete deserts.

This memorial pendant was made in 1817 to commemorate the death of Princess Charlotte. She was the only daughter of the Prince of Wales (the future George IV) and his wife, Caroline of Brunswick. Charlotte had married Leopold of Saxe-Coburg, the future king of the Belgians, in 1816 and died in childbirth the following year. Three locks of her hair have been curled into the shape of Prince of Wales’ feathers. These are mounted in the vase that hangs below the miniature.
