In an effort to raise awareness of various humanitarian crises such as women's & children's rights, fair treatment of prisoners, and the lessening of violence, Amnesty International has teamed up with advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather and artistic duo Coarse on a new line of “Freedom Candles” to raise profits for the humanitarian organization. Ostensibly, the candles are sculptural representations of various means of repression, but when the candles are burned, the wax melts away to reveal bronze sculptures of hope hidden within. The candles are limited to a production run of just 30 and are currently available now via bidding on eBay, don't sleep!...
