We wanted to create a candle about BALANCE because the idea of it is nuanced and multifaceted. Our fast paced society tells us that balance is easy as working five days and resting for two. We say look to nature; she shows us that everything is seasonal and that things can take time but they all come out in the wash. We just need to have faith.
From Holly –
“I began to search the history of the Yin Yang and balance and was reminded of Pangu. How perfect. I loved the historical images from Chinese mythology. I loved the idea of introducing a mystical character and culture to our collab!
I’m also obsessed with the Yin Yang symbol. It just all came together and it’s like, ‘Oh, maybe Pangu is my person.’ I didn’t want something gendered either. Making Pangu androgynous was interesting to me. I gave them boobs. I just was open to doing my version of it.”
Pangu was born from a cosmic egg that coalesced in a primordial state for 18,000 years on a mountain top. They created the universe by separating Yin and Yang with their knowledge of the dualities. Pangu’s story is also referenced in the 1978 Japanese kid’s show theme song ‘Monkey Magic‘.
Binaries are an abstract, acknowledge this to temper them and accept ambiguity. That’s where opportunity lies.
