Russian Ikon Tray

This arrangement was inspired by both the tray and the candles.  The tray reminds me of Russian Ikon religious paintings and of course all the pillar candles are religiously themed.  I thought they went quite well together, so I put them in an arrangement.  The base is wooden, and the design on it is cut into the wood.  The candles were collected over time, from various places.  I love the face of the Madonna on the base plate, she is beautiful and fierce.
