Alexandre Ivory Wax Bust
As a matter of interest, the two busts remained in the Brongniart's family until they were purchased by the Louvre - Louise in 1898, and Alexandre in 1900.
Enchanting wax sculptures in the memory of men, women and children who have marked our history. Cire Trudon has brought back to life the lovely tradition of wax sculptures to be collected rather than consumed.
Trudon keeps a little secret when it comes to manufacturing: candle wax made with the highest quality of natural wax produced from rice, soya and copra (coconut kernel), forming a unique mixture, to be blended with perfume for perfect candles that go on burning.
The candle wicks are made from pure cotton. The candles do not contain any substances on the Greenpeace OSPAR list. No heavy metals or pesticides are involved in their manufacturing and they are entirely biodegradable.
