This ex-voto was found during archaeological excavations in Syria during the 1850s. It was most likely an offering to a Syrian deity. The dedication engraved around its wrist: “Prokla en ex-voto” means “For herself or her house, to dedicate”. The original work is exhibited at the Louvre. As part of its collaboration with the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (The French National Museum Organization), Cire Trudon presents these designs in various colored waxes. This ex-voto is adorned with a wick, paying tribute to the primary function of a candle, even if our wax sculptures are meant to be collected rather than consumed.
