MYKES

Product description

Mykes is a collection of re ned hand-blown glass candle stands produced in three different sizes, whose shape mirrors the harmonious lightness of a mushroom. Inspired by ancient Greek culture, where the mushroom was considered a symbol of life endowed with divine properties. Legends relate that the courageous hero Perseus, weary after a long journey, quenched his thirst with water collected in the cap of a mushroom. Grateful for the solace offered by nature, he decided to establish in that very site a new city called Mycene (from the Greek mykes, which means mushroom).
