Designed and developed for Forwood Design, the Malachite Ostrich Egg Sculpture / bookends will look elegant and stylish on any mantelpiece. Created by using our exclusive malachite pattern finish it adds a stunning visual in green to any room. A white and grey faux marble plinth completes the sculpture. While they look good on their own, a pair makes wonderful book ends.
Malachite is a very special stone with its amazing patterns in deep and pale greens. There is a long tradition of combining malachite with gilt metal or gold. The rich and powerful of the world have been have been using this malachite and gilt combination for millenniums.
Craftsmen and artists have also been creating faux malachite products for centuries to recreate luxury of the real stone. For example the traditional method to do this is by painting malachite like swirls in different shades of green. Eventually a few very ago I worked out a method of creating a really realistic faux malachite using photography. As you can see from this egg sculpture, the results are amazing.
We love to combine the Malachite Ostrich Egg Sculpture with our Alexandra Malachite rectangular mirror for a truly luxurious effect. The sculpture also makes a perfect gift for any occasion including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, christenings or Christmas.
