A nice vintage cast iron bookend feature a scene from the famous painting, The Angelus, which depicts devout farmers in prayer for their crops. Good condition. The Angelus exemplifies a species of prayers called the "prayer of the devotee". The devotion was traditionally recited in Roman Catholic churches, convents, and monasteries three times daily: 06:00, 12:00 and 18:00 (many churches still follow the devotion, and some practice it at home).
