Artisans in Izucar, Mexico, first crafted these ceramics as votive offerings for the church. Hand-made and painted Tree of Life candelabras were originally used to burn candles and incense in church ceremonies, as they represented the Garden of Eden. Today the vivid trees adorned with fruits, foliage and figures are made in a variety of designs. Each of these pieces hand painted so colors will vary.
The figures on the trees may be owls or birds and the trees themselves differ in shape - some as in the illustration, others with branches and even some cactus. No two are alike, so please let us choose one for you. They measure about 2-3/4 inches high and vary in width. The holder is made for a birthday candle.
The artisan painting is finely detailed and absolutely wonderful! We're adding a 24-candle box of our favorite - all beeswax dipped taper - birthday candles for extra measure!
