Middle finger candles make for poetic protests

Sadly, World Middle Finger Day passed us by this month without us knowing it, but we were really excited to see these middle finger candles by Brooklyn-based artist Nao Matsumoto. These were inspired after Matsumoto nearly cut off his middle finger while cutting wood in a studio mishap. Each candle comes in the shape of a hand with the wick sticking out of the middle finger, begging to be lit. The candles were used in protests against Japan’s nuclear energy use during the anniversary of the March 2011 tsunami.
