These alabaster bookends feature The Annunciation by Bouguereau. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal Marian gift for those with devotions to Our Lady.
The original was painted by acclaimed French artist Adolphe William Bouguereau in 1888, one of his many Marian paintings. The text is the beginning of the Hail Mary, Gabriel's words of greeting to Mary.
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.
"Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee!"
