Details

These globally-inspired hand-painted candles are smalls works of art. Crafted by artisans in South Africa, each candle is hand-poured and then individually hand-painted. Each design name is derived from a special African word that is brought to life through the color and patterns which reflect the culture and influences of South Africa. The style images pictured illustrate the general design, but note that each candle is one of a kind.  A truly unique and beautiful gift for hostesses, housewarming, wedding, anniversary, and more that make a striking addition to every home and a beautiful conversation piece! The set of 3 votives arrives in a recycled cardboard gift box, perfect for giving.  Each unscented candle measure 2.5 inches tall by 1.75 inches in diameter each.
 

  • Design Meaning: "Uzima" stands for vitality, power and energy. Whether zebra skin, guinea fowl feather, cheetah skin, porcupine bristles or mysterious traces, the patterns were inspired by the infinitely rich wildlife of Africa and look almost animalistic.
  • "Damisi" is reflective of ancient cave paintings in rust-red, brown and ocher while African patterns and traditional tribal dances recall the cradle of humanity in Africa.
