Once again opera singer, Lina Cavalieri has inspired Fornasetti’s creativity. Her enigmatic expression and classical features made her an ideal muse. Two images are used for the front and back of the ‘Burlesque’ candle. ‘Tema e Variazioni’ #78 (face with veil) and #22 (face with mask). The duality of both images adds a touch of irony that is typical of Fornasetti.
