Namaste. Treat your books with the reverence they deserve with this Divine Offering pair of hands posed in a gesture of respectful greeting and farewell in India. Also known as Anjali Munda, it is performed by pressing the palms of the hands together: as Anjali meaning "to offer, salutation" and Munda "seal or sign." Also used as a centering pose in yoga, preformed seated or standing, it has been said that two hands joined provide a connection between right and left brain and will offer a deeper meaning. Bookends serve as punctuation marks in a library, showcasing your respectful interest and will add character to any room, self, or credenza. These always "at the offering" pair of bookends serve as functional art while giving literary support to your favorite books. Hand-crafted in heavyweight foundry cast iron for exclusively Design Toscano, these Divine Offering sculptural bookends are then hand painted and distressed just enough to replicate a true antique.
