Lazarus candelabra

 

In the church, candles symbolize the purity of the soul. The artist expands this symbolism by creating candles using wax from a collaboration with bees, emphasizing simplicity and sincerity over luxury. This shift from gold to wax underscores key ideals of Christianity and nature. Beyond purity, the work embodies hope: lighting a candle signifies a plea for divine light to dispel inner darkness, echoing Christ's liberation of Lazarus. Thus, we all await a higher power to save us from our soul's shadows.
