Louis XIV Bust - Navy Blue
Absolute authority: chin up, proud bust and a contemptuous attitude, the Sun King rules. Immortalized in a 7-meter high monumental sculpture by Francois Girardon (1699), the 'Louis XIV a cheval' took center stage Place Vendome before the statue was raised to the ground, in 1792, during the French revolution. Today a resident of the Musee du Louvre, the bust still stands tall, reproduced in a smaller scale.
Measures approx. 13 3/4" Tall

Throughout the 17th century, the manufacturer became the Royal Wax Manufacturer and official supplier in the French court, then to Napoléon Bonaparte. Cire Trudon received a Gold Medal during the 1889 Universal Exhibit as a reward for the outstanding quality of its candles and wax.
Trudon enlists well-known “noses” to create perfumes for the stories it wishes to tell. Each candle is still dripped and made by hand in its factory in Normandy, perpetuating a luxury manufacturing which helps perpetuates the skills of its founder, Claude Trudon.
