One of the most distinctive animals found in the vast plains of the African continent has to be the zebra. This wooden zebra head bookend set takes its inspiration from this well-known beast which is a favourite amongst children when visiting zoos across the nation. Their popularity most likely stems from the similar physical appearance the zebra has with their close relative, the horse, which is of course a much loved and mostly domesticated animal in North America.
Made from wood, the zebra head bookends feature two individual heads each looking slightly away from one another. The nature of the material plus the solid bases means that the bookends are strong, sturdy and capable of holding a long line of books. The iconic black and white stripes of the zebra heads will compliment and fit in with a whole host of different décor schemes, especially themes connected to Africa and the Savannah.
These whimsical zebra head bookends can be placed on shelving or on a table in just about any interior in the home. They will go particularly well in a living room or a kid’s bedroom which has an animal or wildlife theme already in place. It will be hard not to fall in love with these delightful zebras with their gentle and passive features. The carving is exceptional and the zebra’s characters shine through thus making their appearance in your room something positive in both functional and decorative terms.
