These alabaster bookends feature a majestic image of The Bread of Life. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal First Communion gift with its riveting use of light and shadow, and the verses from the Gospel of John.
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"x8", including the 4"x6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"I am the Bread of Life. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life"
