Iris (Candle)

Regular price $7.00

Designed from a watercolor painting that I did myself, this lovely candle pays homage to Iris, Greek goddess of rainbows.

This candle stands 8" tall and is 2" in diameter.
The last one of these I burned lasted approximately 85 hours.

Iris, in addition to ruling over rainbows, was a messenger of the gods, and as such had a free pass into Hades (the Greek underworld/one of the Greek afterlife realms) sans consequences (hence her relation to Halloween/fall and my inclusion of her in my mini-series of Fall goddesses...). She also lends her name to several multi-colored things, such as iris the flower, iris the colored part of the eye, and the word iridescent. (Oddly enough, what I've read about her definitely reports that she had gold wings, and her sister had iridescent ones...)
