Alabaster bookends with the scene of St. Joseph and Mary's wedding, and a quote from the Gospel of Mark. Keeping heavy books in line, these bookends both organize and decorate your home. They make the perfect personal gift for newlyweds and all married couples.
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.
"But from the beginning of creation, 'God made them male and female'. 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder. -Mark 10:6-9"
