Flaming Idols are altar candles featuring inspiring figures of the LGBTQ community, created and handmade by Philadelphia artist and activist Robin Markle. 

Elena is a fictional character played by Isabella Gomez on the tv show One Day at a Time. Over time Elena questions her sexuality and eventually comes out as gay, a proclamation that estranges her from her father. The real action starts when Elena meets Syd, a gender non-conforming fellow member of the Feminist Gamers of Echo Park, and they strike up an awkwardly sweet queer romance. Elena never hesitates to say what she thinks and is proud of her identities as a gay Cuban American woman.

Candle is hand-poured with unscented soy wax and burns for approximately 10 hours. Glass votives are 2.5in high and 2in wide at the base.
