Jean-Michel Basquiat Trumpet Candle is the delectable combination of almond and cherry, poured into a porcelain vessel based on the Basquiat's work "Trumpet". Painted in 1984, it possesses the various elements that have been found to be consistent with features found in the over 2000 drawings and paintings that Basquiat made in his career before his untimely death in 1988.
