These alabaster bookends depict Christ, the Alpha and the Omega. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal Catholic gift, reminding us that Jesus is the Beginning and the End of all that is.
The verse from Revelation, combined with the Greek icon move one to reflect on the power of God. This gives us great comfort and makes us think on how we can improve to better serve our loving Lord and Creator.
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.
"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the one who is and the one who is to come, the almighty.
