Analysing my cauldron

I choose to make a cauldron because I feel it represents the Witches who play a vital role in the play, especially the way that they plant seeds in Macbeth’s head and wait for them to grow. For example in the beginning of the play after the battle Macbeth didn’t come across as corrupt however once the Witches told him a prophecy and part of it came true the seed began to grow.
“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. Fillet of a fenny snake, in the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt.” This connotes the Witches are up to something using a cauldron. This can be interpreted as a symbolic part of the Witches stereotypical look. In Macbeth the Witches most of the times are predicting the future, reciting prophecies or helping other characters with their evil deeds e.g. “Come, you spirits that assist murderous thoughts”. this is the witches influencing Lady Macbeth.
This explains why I choose a cauldron.
