More to explore:
I'm guessing carved candles were popular in the 1980s.
When I was a kid, there was a shop that would hand dip and carve right in front of you. We could pick the colors and the carved elements to make them unique. (extra wax from the drippings were used to make mushroom shaped small candle holders) We still have them.
Remember these? They made them at kiosks in the mall in the 80s
Remember these? I HAD A UNITY CANDLE THAT WAS SIMILAR TO THIS1
