    More focal than functional

    The bookends really aren't heavy enough to securely support books, but they do hold up a few books nicely and they make for excellent decoration and conversational and pieces.

    More than one use!

    These busts were given to me by my family because I'm a world history teacher and I needed heavy bookends for my texts and reference books. But they are so detailed, I am considering using them in my Ancient Greece display, along with B&N copies of The Iliad and The Odyssey!

    Impressive

    Expecting something of less value; I was very impressed with the actual Marble Busts. On the other hand I learned the company has busts such as Socrates. That would have been top notch. In any case; they are a fine edition to my Library.
