Details

This ex-voto was found during archaeological excavations in Syria during the 1850s. It was most likely an offering to a Syrian deity. The dedication engraved around its wrist: “Prokla en ex-voto” means “For herself or her house, to dedicate.” The original work is exhibited at the Louvre.

This is part of a collaboration with the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (The French National Museum Organization). This ex-voto is adorned with a wick, paying tribute to the primary function of a candle, even if Cire Trudon's wax sculptures are meant to be collected rather than consumed.

Ingredients + Benefits

Wax is essentially made with soya and copra. 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.

Brand Info

Founded in 1643, on the threshold of the reign of Louis XIV, Cire Trudon is the oldest Candlemaker in the world still active today.

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.
