  • Cire Trudon's Bust collection celebrates the most iconic and influential historical figures of the French Revolution. Discovered during an archaeological excavation in Syria during the 1850s, this sculpture 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. As part of its collaboration with the Runion des Muses Nationaux (The French National Museum Organization), Cire Trudon presents reproductions in various colored waxes. This unscented, decorative candle is adorned with a wick, paying tribute to the primary function of a candle, though it is designed to be displayed as a work of art, establishing its prestige as a statement piece to any study or home office.
