These unique one of a kind modern arabesque bookends were designed by The Arabesque to combine a little bit of tradition, history, and enchantment - all in one. The arabesque pattern on the surface of the tray is a new organic design pattern exclusively designed by The Arabesque. They will bring the right amount of charm and elegance to your home or office bookshelves. Its old world and fantasy style can be used in many settings.
In his epic play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare takes us on a journey through the enchanted woodlands of Fairyland. Written between 1590 - 1597, the play is still performed all around the world and imagined in different visual representations. The Arabesque was inspired by this literary work of art in the production of our own Midsummer Night's Dream Collection pieces. Check out other products from this collection in our shop.
“Lovers and madmen have such seething brains,
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend
More than cool reason ever comprehends.
The lunatic, the lover and the poet
Are of imagination all compact:
One sees more devils than vast hell can hold,
That is, the madman: the lover, all as frantic,
Sees Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt:
The poet's eye, in fine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.”
(Shakespeare - A Midsummer Night's Dream)
