call 2108589707
These alabaster bookends feature a neoclassical depiction of the Chalice and Host at the mass and the Tantum Ergo Sacramentum. Keeping heavy books in line, they both organize and decorate your home. This pair of bookends makes the perfect personal First Communion Gift. This image gracefully speaks of the Real Presence and Sacredness of the Eucahrist. It is taken from the vibrant painting Madonna of the Host is by French artist Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. 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"x8", including the 4"x6" inset image plaque, and is 3" deep. Text: "Tantum ergo Sacramentum Veneremur cernui: Et antiquum documentum Novo cedat ritui: Præstet fides supplementum Sensuum defectui. Genitori, Genitoque Laus et jubilatio, Salus, honor, virtus quoque Sit et benedictio: Procedenti ab utroque Compar sit laudatio. Amen."
