Keep sweet cub Xiao Qi Ji close with panda bookends made in his likeness. Crafted from bonded marble resin, this pair of Xiao Qi Ji Panda Bookends captures his playful nature while it commemorates the momentous occasion of his birth at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in 2020. The public helped name him, which translates to "little miracle" in English. Each sold separately.

Sitting: the one sitting upright chewing on a stick of raw sweet potato
Standing: the one with his arm and paw outstretched; as if trying to wave hello

Customer Rating: 5 out of 5 Adorable!

I purchased the set as a Christmas present for my panda-loving wife and she thinks they are great. They are both such sweet likenesses of Xiao Qi Ji that I simply had to get the set. I couldn't choose one over the other. These were much bigger than I anticipated, but that's not a bad thing. Very substantial and well made. They look great on display. I highly recommend. A great gift for a panda fan.

Customer Rating: 5 out of 5 Love the carving, very heavy and will hold books up easily.

I love it but couldn't afford to buy the pair for a gift.
