Candle Care & Safety

Every Leda candle is quality controlled and is unique given her hand-made nature, however, slight variations may occur between candles, adding to her one of a kind beauty.

Inspiration

In Ancient Greek mythology, Leda was an Aetolian princess who became a Spartan Queen. She was seduced by Zeus who feathered himself into the form of a swan. From this copulation, she gave birth to the infamous Helen of Troy whose "face launched a thousand ships and burnt the topless towers of Ilium" as referenced in Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus (1604). 

Leda has since been a classic motif in art, literature and culture. She was the subject of Leonardo Da Vinci‚Äôs painting composition, who was¬†fascinated with the theme of Leda during the time he painted Mona Lisa.¬†Leda was also referenced in¬†William Butler Yeats‚Äô classic poem, ‚ÄėLeda and the Swan‚Äô whereby Leda's daughter, Helen shapes mythological history and symbolises the collapse of Troy.¬†

While both offer an interpretation of this classical myth, Love Ally has curated their own interpretation of Leda and chosen a wax medium to carefully sculpt her form which symbolises strength and empowerment.
