Hand-made Carrera Marble Bible, AMC


This is a solid marble book made out of Carrera marble. This marble has been used to make sculpture since the time of Ancient Rome. Michelangelo's Pieta was made with this very same marble. The book is heavy and has a presence; it is a bible inscribed with the letters AMC on the front. AMC could stand for a variety of places: the Akron Mennonite Church, St Paul's AMC church in Georgia, or Ascension Memorial Church. It is a curious religious object, for any person who holds the bible important in his or her life. This bible could be a centerpiece or a conversation piece in any home. It dates to the turn of the Century and is beautifully made with hand etched marks that are visible but also have been worn as this book has been handled over decades, passed among many hands. The depth of the book is marked with hand etched pages. The bible measures 5 inches high and 3 1/2 inches wide, 2 1/4 inches deep. It also makes a great piece for a book collector, as this heavy marble book can be placed among other books and as well as decorate, function as a book marker or book-end. It has a wonderful white glow and is soft to the touch. Made with fine hand worked marble. Really a gem of a find.
