Hand-carved asian elephant marble sculpture bookends, 1950s Nice vintage pair of hand crafted brown marble elephant bookends. Vintage bookshelf decor elephants bookends animal sculpture. These are hand carved and therefore not completely identical, "In Feng shui, the symbol of the elephant can bring energies of beauty, silent power, kindness, fertility, and majesty. Even though elephants are the largest land animals living on the planet today (and one of the strongest, too), its energy feels invariably kind and wise. The elephant symbol is very easy to use and can offer many different benefits throughout the home or office. An elephant's trunk is both very sensitive and very strong and is used for a variety of purposes from drinking to picking up food to greeting friends or warding off enemies. In most Feng Shui applications, the elephants are usually depicted with the trunk down, symbolizing the showering of good health". Nice decorative hand-carved elephant sculptures. Made of a heavy stone marble. Handcrafted in Asia Circa 1950s. Each book end is: 4" H x 2.5" x 4.5".
