Featured Reviews on Wood Bookends
I originally saw something like this while staying at a resort in Bali. Sadly, I could not find it there while I was visiting, but was thrilled to find it on Novica?s website. It is so much more beautiful in person and I am immensely happy with this purchase! It has become one of my favorite pieces in my home!
I love walking into my kitchen and seeing these whimsical bookends holding up my cookbooks! They bring visual joy into my home.

The artist is motivated to carve by one principal theme: "Recording the events" of his time.
Popular Wood Bookends
Indonesian Wood Rabbit Bookends (Pair), "Rabbits Like to Read"$129.99
Dressed in handloomed tie-dyed cloth, two cheerful rabbits work as bookends. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya carves the long-eared readers from crocodile wood, painting them with fanciful patterns. The dolls can be posed in a variety of positions as they sit on iron bases.
Artisan Crafted Indonesian Wood Bookends (Pair), "Guardian Monkeys"$114.99
Two wary monkeys stand guard over books. Each grasps a jar of holy water with long simian fingers, ready to sprinkle holy water to aid mankind. Sculpted of suar wood, these bookends by Wayan Rendah depict beloved creatures in Balinese society. Honored for their role in saving Sita in the Ramayana, they are welcomed in temples even though they sometimes disrupt ceremonies with their antics.
