The man and woman on these carved wooden bookends represent Mesoamericans, possibly Incan or Mayan. They were hand carved; the detail on them is so precise and the painting is excellent.

The figures are seated on a dark-stained, 1 inch thick slab of wood. Behind each of them is a pyramid; even the building blocks on them are delineated. The woman is seated with her arms encircling her knees; her hair is parted in the center with two long braids down her back. The man is hunched forward with his arms crossed on his lap and is wearing a simple wrapped head covering.

Since these are hand made, the measurements vary on the height of each bookend. The pyramid on the female one measures 5 ¾ inches high, while the one behind the male measures 5 ½ inches. The bases are 4 ¾ inches front to back and 3 ¾ inches across. The female figure is 4 ¾ inches tall and the male is 5 inches tall. Other than a narrow split across the man’s left foot they are in excellent condition.
