Louis XIV Wax Candle Bust
Cire Trudon’s Louis XIV candle bust depicts the Sun King in full imperial, sovereign bearing.
Cire Trudon’s wax bust range reflects the brand’s venerable history, creating candles for the French nobility since 1643. François Girardon’s original Louis XIV à cheval sculpture was created between 1685-1687 from brass, standing an imposing seven metres tall. The original statue was destroyed in 1792 during the French Revolution – the reduced-sized version, from which this bust is drawn, remains in the permanent collection at the Louvre. Display this wax bust for a flagrantly opulent interiors accent.
