Floral Painted Candles 12 Month Set
Beautiful floral painted candles box set with 12 candles - the artwork on each candle represents seasonal flora and fauna from each month of the year. These vegan candles (made with 100% rice bran wax) are hand crafted by Daiyo in Shiga prefecture and the artworks are exclusively hand painted by a master artisan who works on the special Kiyomizu-yaki wares in Kyoto. Candles are made using natural rice bran wax and the candles are packaged in a fine paper lidded box with "E-rousoku" (meaning "floral painted candles") gold foil printed in an elegant Japanese font.
Floral painted candles are originated in Tohoku - during the harsh winter when it used to be very hard to get fresh flowers people started to paint flowers on the candles and used them for the buddhist altar at their homes as alternatives to fresh flowers.
These candles are perfect to use as decoration, as alternatives to flowers in the hot summer season, or as a special gift to someone special.
- Candle stand does NOT include.
- Each candle has a small hole at the bottom and it needs to be used on the right size candle stand with a stick that is specially made for Japanese candles.
