Douglas Little's gothy, elegant, neo-Victorian D.L.&Co. line of candles and curiosities is one of my favorite home decor design lines of all time. This Bust of Dierdre Candle is a perfect example of why. Based on a neo-classical statue, the bust weeps tears of hot wax when lit. Though I can't imagine anyone actually lighting the thing, as the candle is priced at a tear-inducing $450. It's more a work of art than a candle. Beautiful.
