Going beyond their basic function of keeping books in perfect standing order, Sophia’s charming and unusual bookends also serve as the most appropriate invitation to ‘Enjoy Thinking’. The bookends are inspired by the classical decorative motifs used excessively in ancient Greece to decorate the roofs and columns of temples.
Most popular is the antefix (acroterion) of the Parthenon Temple, detached from the temple roof and now exhibited at the British Museum. The ancient greek and later on, roman roofs had an inclination of 30 degrees and their edges were covered with acroterion in order to be protected from the intrusion of birds and snakes. They were made by using clay or marble and their surface was decorated with elaborate designs of faces, plants and animals.
