These alabaster bookends feature Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati, an avid athlete, friend to the poor, and lover of Christ. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for young men and everyone with a devotion to this modern man who strove to treat others like Jesus.
The classic photograph is of Pier Gorgio shows him on top of a mountain, one of his favorite things to do. The quote reminds us of the determination and focus on the Lord the Christian man needs to be holy.
The bookends are made from stone-cast alabaster here in our shop in Steubenville, Ohio. Alabaster is a building and decorating material created from the mineral gypsum that has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. It boasts an attractive smooth finish and will last for years to come.
Each measures roughly 6" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
