CRYING CANDLE by HELDER

This candle cries tears as the candle burns.

The inspiration for this work are portrayals and descriptions of weeping statues, icons and images of saints which count as sensational and controversial phenomena.
Are such phenomena from actual miraculous origin? The investigations around those tear miracles intrigued my. The motivation was not the discovery of a fraud, but the attempt to give a object a ability, such as crying.
The crying candle is a kind of Deus ex Machina (god of theater machine). A selfmade miracle, which with her improbability or implausibility is able to surprise the audiences and influence or change the atmosphere.
