French to English translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary
French term or phrase:roue suedoise
This is featured in a newspaper article describing a street/circus performance. I just want to know if it is something more specific than a "Swedish wheel."
Explanation: This is a real guess: I know that the Swedes are known for their beautiful crowns for festive accasions, is it possible that you have a bad French translation of the "Couronne Suédoise"? From the little context that we have to go by, I would think of a cartwheel as it has been proposed, but could it be a crown?
