The “Evangelium” in tribute to the writers of the four canonical Gospels. This beautiful iconic design rendered in bronze toned wax, gilded with 24 carat gold leaf dramatically offsets the natural hues of the 51% Beeswax Paschal. Mathew, Mark, Luke and John; early, traditional Christian art has long depicted, in beautiful iconic fashion, these four writers of the canonical Gospels as the four living creatures that surround God’s throne. Centuries old, Cherubim renditions of Mathew/Human, Mark/Lion, Luke/Ox, and John/Eagle. Due to the workmanship required to benchcraft each candle, please allow four weeks for the creation and delivery of your Eximious paschal candle. Each and every Evangelium paschal is meticulously assembled using hand-cast wax ornaments, trimmed with 24 karat gold leaf then inlaid beneath the surface of the highest quality 51% Beeswax candle.
