The soapstone used to create these majestic bookends originates from the Tabaka Hills of Western Kenya, where the stone is known as kisii. Tribesmen from the Kisii highlands mine the stone using hand tools and carve it using traditional methods. The kisii stone can be carved into various products such as vases, trays and food bowls.

These abstract elephant bookends are a prime example of the beauty of Kenyan craftsmanship. Made from beautiful soapstone, they look fantastic in any library, den or office. A subtle geometric pattern is etched into the surface, adding texture and artistry. Each bookend measures about 6.5 inches high, 3.5 inches wide, and 2.75 inches deep. Pieces each weigh about 4 pounds, providing the heft to support even the bulkiest book collection.

  • Black elephant bookends with etched design

  • Bookends are each 6.5 x 3.5 x .275 inches

Beauty isn't perfect, it's authentic. This piece is artistically created by hand where beauty and imperfections go together wonderfully. Please accept and appreciate minor imperfections and variations which are true characteristics of this craft.
