These alabaster bookends feature an icon of Christ the Teacher. Able to keep heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal gift for professors, parents who home school, and any who seek the Truth through learning or instruct others.
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.
Each measures roughly 6" x 8", including the 4"x 6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep.
"O source of all Wisdom, Christ the Teacher You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Teach me to embrace the truths You have revealed to Your Church. Fill my soul with Your Grace that I may love God above all any my neighbor as myself and that I may teach my students always to follow You, to never walk in darkness, but to have forever the Light of Life. Amen."
