Desert Ironwood Cape Buffalo Bookends
A perfect way to showcase a prized book collection, especially one dedicated to African wildlife. These highly detailed Cape Buffalo busts are carved from a solid piece of one of the most beautiful hardwoods in the world, what we know as Desert Ironwood (Olneya Tesota) from the Sonoran Desert. The wood is gathered from naturally fallen trees and through long hours of carving, hand sanding and polishing, the beautiful burl and distinctive grain inherent to Ironwood appears. Each bust is attached to a desert ironwood base. The two pieces make quite an impressive set. Polish with a soft cloth and occasionally apply a light coat of neutral paste-type shoe wax. Each measures approximately 6-3/8" wide x 5-3/8" deep x 6-3/4" tall. Set weighs 4 lbs. 5 oz. Size and weight will vary slightly. Hand carved in Mexico. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
