A Mysterious Hand



Artist Statement:  This listing is for 2 candle holders cut from reclaimed olde growth pine. The wood was once a floor joist from a 19th century Philadelphia house and bares marks betraying its past life. The pieces have been sanded and finished with 100 percent pure tung oil. They have been decoupaged with handpicked images from a Victorian Animal Bible from the 1800s. These images have been glued onto the wood with PH neutral adhesive and sealed with an acrylic sealer. Peg and Awl has been stamped into the bottom of each candle holder.

The 2 candles are 8in x 2in x 2in.

Each block includes 1 hand poured pure beeswax tea light candle.
