This handmade candle holder is inspired by traditional symbols of Sardinia: lapwing, prehistoric warrior, mask of Mamuthones, present in miniature versions in different points of the sculpture. Tiny windows, doors and openings in the Nuraghe construction that dominates the village permit to notice the internal light.
An opening on the bottom of the sculpture permits to insert a tea light that will create an illumination effect.
Our Mediterranean-style villages take inspiration from the architecture of Michele Busiri Vici, called by Prince Karim Aga Khan IV to design Porto Cervo at the beginning of the 1960s. Their forms, slightly angular, rounded here and there, remind seashells; white colouring evokes bright Sardinian sands. Clay roofing tiles, circular windows and arch terraces along with any tiny particular reflect the marine style, a way of living the summer. Each village is handcrafted, unique and different from the others, protected by a natural box and authenticated by the author's signature.
