Some birds aren’t meant to be caged. They’re meant to shed a light in the dark, with a fluttering pillar candle to keep us company on the colder nights of spring. Anne’s Candle Bird is the result of Anne Marie’s rich imagination while travelling across South-Africa.
With a rich heritage in symbolism, many African tribes see birds as the symbol of a sacred presence in nature. They were thought to express the divine will and expression of God. According to Credo Mutwa, a South African Sangomas witch doctor, birds are the souls of humans who have reached a high state of perfection, representing higher wisdom and knowledge. Birds have the ability to walk on earth, float on water and ascend into the air – the ultimate, earthly freedom. Birds, creatures of air, land and water, inspired Anne to create a beautiful, white ceramic candle holder, depicting two magnificent birds. No less than 40 cm high, it makes quite the statement in or outdoors.
