Striking and Hand Carved Art Deco Athletic Nude Male and Rock Sculpture Bookends

$1,557.74 per set


Impressive and stylized strongman bookends, hand carved out of one block of wood. The artist who made these abstract and wonderful bookends has perfectly captured the natural posture of a man pushing his back against an object. The stylized exaggeration of the nude male's muscular body makes that sculpture extra impressive. On the other bookend, there is the opposite of a strong object of Mother Nature. Obviously it costs the rock no energy at all to accomplish the exact same result, namely, keeping your books standing upright. We have once before owned and sold a pair of bookends by the same sculptor and although this pair is signed, we still can't find out who the artist behind this unique and stunning style is. You will also seldomly come across an abstract work of art of such good quality and condition, because both these sculptural and meaningful bookends simply could not be in better condition. This rare and sizable pair will look great on your desk, side table, in your bookcase or wherever you prefer to put them on display. These works of art too are great value for money. Also, because perfect packing and delivery from our store to your door in just 4 days are complimentary. Wherever you may live on our beautiful planet. Width x height x depth of the strongman bookend: 9.8 x 8.1 x 4.5 inches. Width x height x depth of the rock bookend: 6.3 x 8.85 x 4.5 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again). You can shop all our 1000+ listings by pushing the button that reads 'View All From Seller'.
