Flicker (original) by Nader G. Vakili

Flicker (original)

Candle flame: Honduran Mahogany; Candlestick: granite (greyish white)
Candle flame: 16"H x 13"W x 3.5"D; Candlestick: 11.75"H x 6"W x 4.5"D

From remembrance of a poem by the thirteenth-century Persian poet, Saadi, which begins: 'A night I remember my eyes wouldn't sleep, I heard the moth telling the candle….' This is the original Flicker, from which a mold was made, producing variations on the theme in bronze, Flicker #1, and Flicker #2.
