Egyptian Alabaster Votive 5" Globe
Skillfully handmade in the tradition of ancient Egypt, and polished to a smooth luminescent finish, this 5.5”x 5”x 5" globe is truly an exquisite work of art reminiscent of the sacred artifacts that graced the palaces and pyramids of Pharaohs past.
Each piece is fashioned by master craftsmen, using quality stones and time tested artisanal techniques. Due to the handcrafted construction and organic variation in the alabaster itself, each creation is one-of-a-kind, imbued with its own unique colors and textures, milky veins and amber-hued swirls.
This unique, translucent marble creates a warm, suffused glow with tea lights, glass contained votive candles, fuel cells or battery operated illuminative devices.
For a dramatic statement, place in the foyer, living room, or on a mantel. Its sculptural quality also makes it ideal for the garden or patio while its heftiness resists breezes and wind.
- Egyptian Alabaster
- Dimensions: 5.5” W x 5” L x 5” H
- Weight: 5 lbs.
- Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, size and weight may vary slightly
- Although alabaster does not tend to overheat like glass or metal, it is never recommended to burn candles too close to the wall of the votive container, nor is it recommended to burn candles for more than 2 hours
- If wax does drip onto the alabaster itself, remove gently with a blunt object when it has cooled and congealed
- Since alabaster is as absorbent as marble, colored candles are not recommended. Use only white or ivory candles to maintain the most natural illumination.
- Direct sunlight will patinate alabaster to a lighter shade, but does not affect its illumination. To keep original color, it is best to not keep in sunlight for long periods of time.
- Alabaster can be washed if candles smoke and leave a residue. Use the rough side of a sponge with soap to remove any stains.
- It is recommended to use tea lights or glass encased votive candles as these will keep your votives clean for immediate reuse
Height: 5 in.
