Morbid relics of an ancient past, saints of the catacomb.
Adorned with armor, jewels, and fine cloth tailored by sisters of the Church, these unearthed Roman remains were extolled as martyrs.
Beautiful and terrible, representing the glory of the afterlife, these holy bodies were of huge demand to demoralized parishes in the wake of the Protestant Reformation.
Though many have long since been lost or destroyed, the scandal and splendor associated with them remains, stained deeply into the history and tapestry of the Catholic Church.
This homage to those ancient citizens is made from soy wax, cotton wicking, and eco-friendly dye.
Each piece is approximately 6.5" tall, and is lead and zinc free.
Available in the following colors: Stone, Cobalt, Crimson
