D.N.A. Candle - Vanitas II

You can see more images from this series of wedding gifts and read about the symbology on my blog, The Flying Trilobite.

The D.N.A. candle for my good friends is painted in oil on canvas. Part of the frame is visible in this image.

So, when do these candles hit the shops? And can you get some with your own DNA?

No, seriously - I love the image.

Thank you very much, Kris!

I've started and stopped a short story a few times of a near future where giving these candles with a couples' cellular material overlayed on on wire or in liquid form inside of glass tubes would be the secular ritual for weddings.

If I have enough time this summer between art contracts, I may sculpt one.

It means a lot coming from a freethinking and bright guy such as yourself.
Thanks! :-)

I'll be posting another one down the road. I'm at that age where many friends get married!
