You’ve found Einar, the mystical Icelandic Unicorn. Legend holds that he has a heart of gold. We can only vouch for the ribs and spine. Best to check for yourself.
These unique candles by Icelandic designer Thorunn Arnadottir are the result of thinking about the way people use candles: "One day I saw the body of a Santa Claus shaped candle with his head melted away. I wondered if I could elevate this ritual sacrifice into a true theatre of the macabre in wax". She came up with the idea of embedding a metal skeleton within a cat shaped candle, and the idea grew from there.
Pair with a Pyropet Plate to add style, and wax dripping function.

Exploring everyday objects from a new perspective
Icelandic designer Thorunn Arnadottir spends her days figuring out how to turn the mundane into the unexpected, gorgeous, thought provoking, and preposterously fun. Could it be Iceland? Maybe endlessly bumping into the same people sends the imagination into uncharted territory.
