Kraken Bookends Aren’t Recommended for Seafarers
September 22nd, 2013
I know the chances of a giant monster actually living at the bottom of the ocean are pretty slim, but the ocean is a very deep, and why tempt fate? The Kraken is probably one of the worst mythical sea monsters out there – reaching up to crush ships with its disgusting slimy tentacles.
If you have a penchant for mythical beasts and bizarre bookends, these Kraken bookends are just for you. Just be sure you’re not living on a boat.
You can purchase a these off Etsy where an artist by the name of Dellamorteco sculpted the shipwreck by hand, then cast it from resin and painted on a bronze finish. The result is incredibly realistic and lifelike and must’ve taken a very long time to make. You have to check out some of the close-up images to get an idea of how detailed these bookends really are.
Priced at $250(USD), the limited-edition bookends aren’t exactly cheap, but considering it’s an handmade piece of art, the price isn’t too bad. There are more than a few people out there who would love to have a pair these sitting on their pirate-themed libraries.
