Byzantine Madonna and Christ Bookends
These alabaster bookends depict Byzantine Icons of Christ, the Alpha and the Omega and Mother Mary. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal Catholic gift, especially for those with Marian devotions.
The two icons use the classic Greek use of red garments to signify divinity. While Mary's clothes are blue, signifying her humanity, the outer red cloak shows her exalted status and her union with God.
The bookends are made from stone-cast alabaster. Each measures roughly 6" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
